A public safety demonstration grant from AARP Louisiana has helped transform Longfellow Park in North Baton Rouge into a peaceful sanctuary among its treasured live oaks. The funding allowed BREC to install permanent up-lighting to 15 Live Oak Trees and provided for more pedestrian lighting along the walking trail at the park. The new features will be unveiled at a celebration on Tuesday, Dec.17. The festivities will include food, fun and entertainment for the entire family. This event is free and open to the public.
AARP’s Community Challenge program awarded 159 quick-action grants this year, providing $1.6 million to organizations in all 50 states. The Bayou State received three of the grants.
As a part of a nationwide project, AARP Louisiana worked with the city of New Orleans local Parks and Recreation department to open an outdoor fitness park designed for people of all ages. Denise Bottcher, AARP Louisiana State Director; Larry Barabino, Jr., NORD CEO; and Teri Guerin, Chief of Staff for Councilwoman Cyndi Nguyen, welcomed community members to the new park during a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Tuesday, Oct. 29.
