PELTIERPARK WALKING TRAIL
The Parks and Recreation Department, located inPeltier Park, has a new look these days. Ifyou walk or drive through Peltier Park, you will find a walking trail stakedwith little pink ribbons waiving in the breeze.
Through local funds and a grant from Recreational TrailsProgram, the City is developing a one-half mile-walking trail in Peltier Park.
In a recent study, Mayor Charles Caillouet concluded,“the most popular forms of recreation are walking, bicycling and jogging.”
This project will provide a compatible facility use forstudents and faculty members of Nicholls State University and area schools,including South Thibodaux Elementary, East Thibodaux Junior High, West ThibodauxJunior High, St. Joseph Elementary and E.D. White Catholic High School.
The walking trail is expected to be ready for use byJune 15, 2002.
