Ouachita Parish Reviews
Ouachita Parish houses a mall, several great places to eat, a state college, several Walmarts, and many highly rated for children to go to school. However, I rated this parish as average because many places do not seem safe to be in as a young female after dark. Overall, Ouachita parish is a nice parish, just make sure and research the areas you plan on visiting beforehand!
I live in West Monroe, Louisiana in Ouachita Parish. My hometown is close knit, clean and has a wonderful community vibe. Friday night football at our local high school is the BEST! There are plenty of activities and churches; not to mention, we are the home of Duck Dynasty! Come see our town!
I live in Ouachita Parish! My kids attend Ouachita Jr High & Ouachita Parish High School! I believe the safety/ crime should be changed.. Most neighborhoods need to try cleaning up! Some houses that are sold to be rented aren’t in nice condition!
