Construction for the Rue Beauport Riverfront Project will begin Monday, January 9, 2017.  Due to the scope of the project, the riverbank will be closed to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic beginning on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 until the project is completed.  Beau Jardin and the Roque House Gardens will remain open throughout the duration of construction.

Once completed, the riverfront will feature a plaza overlook with handicap access to the riverbank, enhanced stage to accommodate a wide range of performances and concerts, promenade along the river’s edge, lawn terrace amphitheater designed into the existing slope in front of the stage, and a permanent restroom facility and plaza at the south end of the riverbank. The City of Natchitoches appreciates the public’s patience while these improvements are being made.


  1. Natchitoches needs some restaurants such as Red Lobster; Ruby Tuesdays; Olive Gardens places that people that come to visit our city can enjoy eating at Chilis stays packed just about all the time even maybe a Cafeteria something that people can enjoy going to not just during Christmas time but during all the different festivities we have here

  2. looks like a nice picture and all but ! I am sure there will be talk about
    why this money isn’t spent on roads instead of beautification
    of the riverbank.How do you get to the riverbank when the roads are
    “crap ” ?

    • The money is not coming out of the road fund it’s coming out of the Cane River commission funds that are supposed to be used for the upkeep of the river.

    • Cane river commission is paying for it as I understand, and that money couldn’t be spent on road repairs. I wish they’d find some money for roads.
