Cajun Lagoon offers new fun way to beat the heat

There’s a new way to beat the heat in Livingston Parish this summer. Scheduled to open May 4 only for weekends until schools are out, Cajun Lagoon gave the community a chance recently to preview their new entertainment complex.

The inflatable obstacle courses have been installed and are awaiting the May 4 opening of Cajun Lagoon Waterpark north of Denham Springs.

Located on LA Hwy. 16 directly across from Arnold Road (LA Hwy. 1025), Cajun Lagoon is a family-friendly five-acre park which offers a wide variety of activities for the whole family. It’s a “free-play” water park with both shallow- and deep-water activities that are challenging and fun for all ages. The challenge courses vary in size; one of the big courses can handle about 100 people at one time.

“The courses are challenging but not aggressive. There is also a kiddie zone for the little ones,” said Melissa Ray. “We’re a locally-owned and operated business that has worked hard to develop a family friendly environment.”
She is one of the owners of the facility along with her husband Jason Ray, her parents Chuck and Lori Taylor, and fifth partner Cody Duke.

“Cajun Lagoon has a variety of attractions including the huge water park, swimming, water slides, water and beach volleyball, land inflatables, a beach pavilion, concessions, and much more,” she said.

There is also a large beach area for sunbathing, sandcastles or just relaxing. The sandy beach slopes down into the artificial lake to mimic a natural beach. Parties can be accommodated.

“We were looking for another business to complement our inflatable rental business, Amusements of Denham Springs,” Melissa explained. “We always had people wanting us to host parties, and we decided this was a good way to offer a fun water park and also have a facility where we can have parties. We have been planning this for the last year.”

Kids under 4 get in free; children between 4 and 12 pay $15, and those over 13 pay $20. A season pass is $65. Call for information about parties.

“This is good, clean family fun,” said Melissa. “Come and bring the whole family to enjoy an experience like nowhere else.”
