North Boulevard Town Square is a spectacular greenspace development that has transformed the disjointed area between North Boulevard and River Road into a lively downtown center where the city's cultural and civic attractions come together for all to enjoy. While this area was previously unusable with virtually no tree cover to protect visitors from the relentless Louisiana heat, it has now become the city's premier social gathering place — featuring more than an acre of open green space and innovative water features that help cool the landscape and a multitude of high-tech amenities to entertain visitors.
A visit to North Boulevard Town Square represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Baton Rouge trip itinerary planning website to plot your vacation.

  • Developed under former Mayor Kip Holden, downtown square is a gathering point for concerts and weekend socializing. A number of new restaurants surround the square.

  • They are really trying to revitalize the downtown BR area and this is a nice addition. Good area for music during certain times of the year, good place for 5K runs, excellent for Jambalaya cookoff...

  • Great public space used for festivals and other events. The River Center branch library is there as well as the City-Parish government center, a number of restaurants and a coffee shop. Bring an umbrella or hat when the sun is out as there is little shade most.of the day.
  • What a great place to host a local event that benefits so many. The venue was awesome as it was well planned out by the organizers and sponsors. Born to Run is an event that should touch everyone’s life. It was a great turn out of runners and walkers who wanted to support this cause. Race route was well thought out as it featured a scenic route. There was plenty of food and water, Gatorade or coffee drink. I will definitely be doing this again next year!!!!
