Fun facts:

  • 6th largest city in LA (between you and I, there were no fun facts for this city)

To Do:

  • For some historic fun, head down to Rivertown along the original main street of Old Kenner. Here you will find a variety of options along a sixteen block area – museums (there’s a Mardi Gras museum!), shops, and cultural resources such as the Rivertown Repertory Theatre, Kenner’s Heritage Park, the Kenner Planetarium & MegaDome Cinema and the Rivertown Science Center. There is also good food and great views of the Mississippi from LaSalle’s Landing.
  • If you just want a mellow park to get some fresh air at, check out Laketown It features a boat launch, two piers, pavilions, and a jogging/biking path for your fitness needs.
  • When the weather warms up and you want to get some volleyball action, hop over to Coconut Beach Volleyball Complex. This 22 court sand volleyball complex is the largest man-made sand complex in the US.
  • Lafreniere Park – http://lafrenierepark.org/is another place for you to enjoy nature and get outdoors.
