Churchill Tech Park

The Preserve

Toward the far south end of the site, a large portion of property has been set aside for a preserve. This area is designed to be a much more natural open space, with wetlands, wildlife habitat, boardwalks and trails, as well as storm-water management facilities. The preserve will function much differently than the Central Open Space; it is not intended as a central gathering space, but more as an area where users can walk, bicycle, and enjoy the natural amenities of the preserve. The Preserve is also intended to provide a trailhead access to a future levee trail; the trail would continue east and west along the top of the levee, connecting to recreational assets beyond and allowing park users to have views to Lake Cataouatche and Jean Lafitte national Historical Park and Preserve from the top of this piece of infrastructure that now is inaccessible.
