St. Amant Park is a great addition to the Ascension Parish Recreation department. St. Amant Park was originally called St. Amant Properties when a group of residents wanted a place for its community youth to be able to recreate. The old St. Amant Recreation Center has been refurbished and is available for rentals. The rec center will hold approximately 350 people for weddings and similar gatherings. There is a full service kitchen on site as well as a lounge for small meetings. There are 3 lighted ball fields on the grounds. There are two batting cages that can accommodate 4 teams at the same time. The13-18 year olds now have a place they can call home for baseball. There are restroom facilities within a quick walk of all of the ball parks. You can cross a bridge to the back portion of the property, where you could go camping in a primitive setting. A walking/jogging trail encompasses the perimeter of the entire park for a great mile workout.
