Bucktown Marsh Boardwalk


Bucktown Boardwalk in MetairieEnjoy a leisurely stroll on the new Bucktown Marsh Boardwalk on Lake Pontchartrain. Along its 1,000 feet, you will be able to stop to learn about coastal issues. The boardwalk also features bird blinds as well as informational signs about plants, wildlife, fisheries and the coast.

“This is something very close to home for a lot of people. They can come out, see some natural wetlands, enjoy the lake and enjoy the birdlife,” said John Lopez, director of the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation's Coastal Sustainability Program. “It's just a reminder of the values we have with our coast and why it's so important."

Take a break on one of the benches along the boardwalk and watch a glorious sunset. Make a day out of it and pack a picnic lunch and sit at picnic tables under a covered pavilion. Please note, dogs are not allowed on the boardwalk.
