Downtown Greenway

The North Boulevard Promenade section of the Downtown Greenway has opened following a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony that took place yesterday at 5:00PM on North Boulevard.

This phase of the project has transformed the meandering brick path into an urban transportation corridor for pedestrians and bicyclists. The project features a 10' wide bicycle path and complementary separate pedestrian path or garden walk. Thousands of plants were installed and highlight the beautiful oaks along the boulevard. Water fountains, benches, and bike racks are provided, as well as exercise equipment and signage. The project features green painted bike lanes and crossings, which is a first for the State of Louisiana; having been approved by DOTD.

The North Boulevard Promenade section of the Downtown Greenway is part of a 2.75 mile interconnected network of bike/pedestrian pathways connecting Baton Rouge's public parks and recreational facilities, inner city communities, and cultural attractions through the use of greenways, or linear parks.
