We have taken many walks here. Ducks and seagulls have made this place their home. They are perched in many different places along the boardwalk. Or they get lots of exercise flying by you or over you. Sunsets are pretty in the evening.If you have NEVER been to Lake Charles, well, the water here is NOT pretty so don't expect... More

Dropped my daughter off to college and looked around her new city. This was breathtaking. Easy to walk around and just really pretty. It's free and there are lots of places to park yourself. People were randomly putting in poles and nets and getting great catches left and right.

Bord Du Lac stretches along the north side of Lake Charles near I-10 and then swerves southward toward the city proper. It is a nice and peaceful place that offers a pleasant transition from everyday life. The lake is nice and the shoreline and walking path is very calm and restful. As you look across the lake, you can see... More

Great place just to walk along the lake with your dog or kids. Pigeons abound and the fountain is pretty entertaining for little ones.

Beautiful, well light, family friendly place. You can easily fish from most any point or enjoy a nice stroll day or night. Fun place to just walk and enjoy the atmosphere

Very pretty scenery with palm trees and a view of Lake Charles. Can see across to the Westlake bridge on I10. We walked our dogs as the paths are roomy.

This is a great place for a leisurely stroll along the lake. They routinely have events here also. This is a great place to go see one of the many bands that play on the lake front.

Walking along the lake front of Lake Charles is serene and provides an interesting view of area. It has a wide walking path on the lake. It has a water fountain area for children to splash in. Along the path see fountains, amphitheater, civic center, small marina, memorial areas and fishing sections. Great area to walk for exercise while enjoying... More
