Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — A big renovation is coming to Expressway Park.
BREC held an open house this evening to show off their plans.
The park sits under the I-10- I-110 interchange.
Part of the plan is a new bike trail that would connect it with Brooks Park and Memorial Stadium.
"I am very excited to see this area to get redeveloped. A lot of ideas they presented on the survey were pretty cool,” stated Garden District resident Chris Clark. “I would love to see a community garden, more public art and reinvestment in the playground and facilities for the kids."
BREC has been working with the Downtown Development District on its designs for the park.
The money will come from a tax passed by EBR Parish voters back in 2004.
