Both Dawson Creek Greenway and Ward Creek Greenway were recognized by the BREC Commission in 2008 as linear parks with the potential to connect several Baton Rouge parks and destinations. Together, they will create the “Health Loop,” a planned route eventually reaching over 10 miles. Construction has been completed on the portion beginning at Quail Drive, near the Pennington Biomedical Research Center, to the BREC Perkins Road Community Park. The Dawson’s Creek Greenway is currently 1.75 miles. Eastern expansion is planned for an additional approximately 3.75 miles, ultimately connecting to the Ward’s Creek Greenway and creating the Health Loop route.
