Reimagining the Baton Rouge Zoo & Greenwood Community Park
Officially launching in January 2019, the master planning processes for the Baton Rouge Zoo and Greenwood Community Park are officially underway. What do you want to see at your new Baton Rouge Zoo? How do you imagine an even better Greenwood Community Park? As we work through the master planning process, it will be up to the public - that's you - to give us your feedback and guide our vision.
Two nationally-acclaimed design consultants have been selected through a competitive bid process and kickoff meetings were held in late November 2018, allowing the consultants to gain a better understanding of the sites and scope of the projects. The teams are eager to hear what the surrounding communities have to say about these public amenities.
Two identical open-house meetings will be held on Tuesday, January 29 at 2 locations. These will be open-house style visioning meetings to meet BREC staff and the consultant teams who are developing new master plans for these BREC amenities. These initial meetings will serve primarily listening exercises where we want to hear and take note of your ideas and preferences. The consultants will have some basic information about the Zoo and Greenwood Park, and some great zoo and park ideas from other cities around the country to spur creativity
Drop in any time! Presentations will be repeated throughout the 2-hour times for each meeting.
