Exciting changes are coming to

the University Lakes System.

A partnership between LSU and

state and local partners is working

to create a more sustainable lakes system through ambitious environmental restoration that will also add tremendous recreational value for all people of Baton Rouge.


What's In Phase 1?

Based on currently obtained funding, Phase 1 construction will focus on dredging five of the six lakes: City Park, Erie, Crest, Campus, and College Lakes. Additionally, a network of pedestrian and cyclist paths will be improved in certain areas to make the use of the lakes safer and more comfortable for all people.


Additional improvements and recreational amenities will be built along the length of the lake's edges and surrounding park spaces.

Phase 1 construction begins in Summer 2022 with test dredge work that will influence final designs.
