Ascension Parish Riverfront Master Plan
The master plan provides for a new mixed-use riverfront development, which designates Donaldsonville as the cultural and entertainment hub for the parish. Riverboat tours will transition visitors to land based cultural activities within the proposed riverfront development area. Plans provide for the creation of the following: a new riverboat landing, festival venue, amphitheater, observation tower, nature trails, campsites, an interpretive district, mid-rise housing and retail shopping areas. The plans were developed to allow for seasonal change in the river along the batture; computer simulations of the river stages were modeled to illustrate these changes.
