In the Summer of 2015, Pelican Park was one of only two facilities in the State of Louisiana who were granted a recipient of the Coca Cola/ Keep America Beautiful grant. We are one of the 47 grants awarded nationwide. The Park received 40 large recycling cans which are valued at $300-$400 each. This grant has a value of $12- $16,000.00 in cans. A part of the grant is a requirement that the Park track the amount of recylable material we collect. Starting in the Fall, the Park will start tracking recyclables for the grant. Please make sure you are putting your plastic bottles in the blue recylable bins. Prior to the Park receiving this grant, we had implemented our own program to make Pelican Park greener and cleaner. The Park has recycled over 2 tons of recyclable materials prior to the start of the new program and grant.
WE ASK FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT TO MAKE THE PARK A GREENER AND CLEANER PLACE!!!

The Pelican Park Bark Park opened in May 2010 thanks to the ground roots efforts by volunteers who raised money to make the park possible. While the District’s Board of Commissioners designated the four acre tract for the park and staffing to construct the park, the funds raised by volunteers paid for fencing, water fountains, benches, signage, a gazebo and pools. Benches were built and donated by Ethan Mayfield as his Eagle Scout project. In the summer of 2012, lighting was installed to allow the public to use the park in the evenings.
