With all the recent improvements to the Bord Du Lac Park, it is fast becoming a place for kids, joggers, walkers and kids to play in the park. There is also a water park for the kids to play in the water.

Bord Du Lac stretches along the north side of Lake Charles near I-10 and then swerves southward toward the city proper.

Beautiful, well light, family friendly place. You can easily fish from most any point or enjoy a nice stroll day or night. Fun place to just walk and enjoy the atmosphere

Very pretty scenery with palm trees and a view of Lake Charles. Can see across to the Westlake bridge on I10. We walked our dogs as the paths are roomy.
