Livingston Parish is a Great Place to Live!

By
Real Estate Agent with 3Chix Realty

I have lived in Livinston Parish for the last 25 years. Who would have thought? Growing up in Baton Rouge, just across the Amite river from Livingston Parish, this was just a place to go and buy legal fireworks for holiday's. Nobody wanted to live there. Mostly a rural parish, land stayed in the family and was handed down from generation to generation. Most people worked and played in Baton Rouge.
My, how things have changed! Now everyone wants to live here. Livingston Parish is now one of the fastest growing parishes in Louisiana. Even now, Livingston Parish has not gone through the real estate slump the rest of the country has.

Why?

We have a great school system, one of the best in the state.

Real Estate. Lots of new and established neighborhood and condos, or you can still find a home with acreage and have a horse or two. Property values continue to go up, making real estate a good investment.

20 minutes from downtown Baton Rouge.

20 minutes from Hammond.

Near 3 great universities, SLU, LSU,and Southern.

Friendly people. People here are down to earth and sociable, you even get to know your neighbors.

Parks and recreation. North Park is building a WATER PARK, workout facility, and already has a fishing pond! The kids have many sports facilities and opportunities. I even coached my daughters softball teams!

Bass Pro Shop, located in Denham Springs at HWY 16 and I12.

Good restaurants, we even have nightlife!

Golf course at Greystone.

Proposed new YMCA, hopefully coming soon.

Proposed Our Lady of the Lake Medical Complex in Walker.

There are many reasons to live here. The pace just seems slower and life seems sweeter for some reason.
As a single mom, it was a great place to raise my 2 daughters. They were involved in church and school activities and most of their friends they've known since kindergarten. Now they are raising my grandchildren here in Livingston Parish! How lucky am I?
