University Lake Is A Unique Dog-Friendly Destination In Louisiana Perfect For An Outdoor Adventure
As the home of Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge is closely associated with tigers. There could be no more cat-supportive environment than the $3.7 million, 15,000-square-foot habitat of Mike the Tiger, the college’s mascot, that’s located adjacent to Tiger Stadium. The official convention and visitors bureau of Baton Rouge also markets the city as dog-friendly, inviting residents and visitors to bring their dogs to Wampold Memorial Park and enjoy the amenities surrounding University Lake, including the sand and water of Baton Rouge Beach.
University Lake is the centerpiece of what is known locally as “LSU Lakes,” six bodies of water surrounding the campus. The University Lake project, launched in June, is intended to improve the health of the lakes and enhance recreational opportunities, following through on a 2016 master plan.
