Garden District Reviews

2 reviews
The Garden District is great! I’ve lived here for 30 years. The boundaries on this website are incorrect. The Garden District of Baton Rouge is an established neighborhood consisting of 3 subdivisions—Roselyn’s Terrace, Drehr Place, and the first filing of Kleinert Terrace whose residents banded together 45 years ago to form the District. All three subdivisions are on the National Register of Historic Places. The Garden Disttict of Baton Rouge has been designated as a “Great American Neighborhood” by the American Planning Association. There is an active civic association with frequent social events and off duty police patrols. Crime is low compared to suburban areas and there are 5 blue-ribbon schools within walking distance. If you like biking and walking and want to feel connected to your community this is the place to be!

Safe, up-and-coming, hip part of Baton Rouge, full of artists and young professionals, coffeeshops, neat bars, and cool venues. Easily the hippest, innovative, gentrifying part of Baton Rouge.
