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.

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.

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

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
