The construction projects listed on these pages are a direct result of the the successful passing of the November 2, 2004 ballot initiative to improve our public park system. Some of these projects are also from the renewal of a 10-year capital tax, held on April 17, 2004.
We would like to thank you for your continued support and patience as we redesign, rebuild, and re-open our parish parks.
