Live Green, Live Rouge

Located on a verdant block in the heart of Downtown Baton Rouge, The Heron Downtown positions residents in the center of everything without taking you away from the area’s natural resources and beautiful green spaces.

Overlooking the BREC Convention Street Park, your front door opens to a lush green space perfect for a quick dog walk. Once upstairs, residents can enjoy dual third-story courtyards with a resort-style swimming pool and cabana or a soothing relaxation courtyard.

With a fleet of complimentary bicycles available, you can hop on the new Downtown Greenway for a beautiful bike ride. This 10-foot wide bicycle path and separate pedestrian lane is lined with stately oak trees and beautiful greenery in addition to water fountains, benches, and exercise equipment.

The Downtown Greenway connects to the Mississippi River Levee path, a 4.3-mile path extending from the end of the downtown promenade just north of the Mississippi River Bridge and continues south past Skip Bertman Drive at LSU to Farr Park. The 15-foot-wide path includes separate lanes for bicycles and walkers/joggers as well as lighting, seating and water fountains.

Heading north, residents can enjoy State Capitol Park and Arsenal Park. With over 20 combined acres of impeccably maintained green space, the park’s pathways, lakes, and monuments feel completely secluded from the surrounding city.

As residents circle back to The Heron Downtown, the North Boulevard Town Square offers another spectacular green space. Just blocks from your apartment, this area has quickly developed into 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. With a busy lineup of events ranging from food festivals, to Happy’s Running Club, and the Live After Five concert series, this is one of the most popular parks in town.
