Plaquemine City Park is currently undergoing a $1 million transformation, with work expected to begin in the Spring of 2016. Numerous improvements have already been made to the park in recent years, including a Water Spray Park added in 2010, a skateboard park added in 2009, and upgrades to the basketball courts and additional parking in 2008.
The $1 million in improvements planned for 2016 and 2017 include all new children's playground equipment, totaling $250,000:
Addition of an inviting park entrance
Expansion of the walking path
