The City of Lake Charles did a wonderful job of making this beautiful location along the sea wall a place that is inviting. Along with an outside stage there is a playground that is unbelievable. Something not to miss is the 911 memorial located there.

Great place just to walk along the lake with your dog or kids. Pigeons abound and the fountain is pretty entertaining for little ones.
