The City of Broussard has closed on 131 acres of land that will be turned into a new regional recreational park facility.

"Today's closing marks a major milestone for the City of Broussard as we prepare to move forward on the construction of park facility that will serve the citizens of Broussard and the people of the Acadiana region," says Broussard Mayor Charles Langlinais.

The land is located off of St. Nazaire Road, right past WalMart and Home Depot. The City of Broussard bought the land from Billeaud and St. Julien, Inc. for $2,764,537.00.

"The City of Broussard is one of the fastest growing areas in the entire state of Louisiana and this park represents one of the major additions the residents of our city have asked for many years. To have finally secured the property to make this project a reality is a major milestone."

The state-of-the-art $17 million dollar park is expected to be designed, built and open within the next two years.  The park is expected to create an expansion of hotels and restaurants in the area to cater to the competitive soccer and baseball tournaments expected to be played at the new facility on a multi-state level.
