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.
