Outdoor Activities For Spring In New Orleans

Spring is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. Luckily for residents of 1st Lake’s New Orleans area apartments, there are tons of ways to have fun and exercise outdoors. Use some of our ideas for great outdoor activities and take advantage of this temperate time. All are fun for adults while being great outdoor activities for kids as well.

Jog on Lake Pontchartrain – If you are a resident of 1st Lake’s apartments in Kenner, you have the added bonus of Lake Pontchartrain right outside your door. Lake Pontchartrain provides beautiful scenery and a natural resource for fishing, boating or jogging or strolling along the banks.

Picnic at the Park – Picnics are the perfect spring activity and a way to have fun while being outside. There are great parks near our apartments in Metairie including Lafreniere Park, which the Lafreniere Apartments are located right next to. Since 1st Lake Properties is pet friendly, residents will love bringing their dog to the Bonnabel Boat Launch Dog Park and Lafreniere Bark located inside Lafreneire park.

Fishing – Because Louisiana is part of the Gulf Coast, it offers many beautiful waterways that provide many opportunities for outdoor spring activities. There are a number of places to go fishing near 1st Lake Apartments, including the fishing community of Covington where the modern Brewster Commons apartments are located, as well as at the St. Tammany Parish fishing pier near the Audubon Gates apartments in Slidell.

Go Swimming – Many, if not most, of 1st Lake’s apartments come with beautiful and luxurious swimming pools for residents to enjoy. In addition, the Brewster Commons apartments in Covington are near the resort style Stone Creek Club and Spa, complete with fitness classes and equipment, tennis courts, spa, children’s programs and of course a large, immaculate swimming pool.
