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?

Phase1 construction will focus on dredging City Park Lake and Lake Erie.

Additionally, improvements will be made to May Street and the weir underneath Stanford Ave.

New green spaces and shorelines created from the dredge material will be landscaped to create "living shorelines" that will mature and evolve over time, creating ideal habitat and helping to treat runoff before it enters the lakes.
