If you haven't visited Denham Springs, Watson, Walker, or other areas of Livingston Parish lately, you will find many new interest spots and many new subdivisions. One of the now established firsts was the Bass Pro Shop off the Denham exit of I-12. There you can get just about anything you need for fishing, hunting, and outdoor activities. Just down the road from the Bass Pro Shop at the Juban exit, there are plans for a shopping center and you'll see new subdivisions popping up.
One of these subdivisions is Clearlake. These garden style homes are clustered around the banks of some beautiful finger lakes. Many have decks where you can catch fish like the one this resident caught.
Ah, yes, and getting there.... The Livingston Parish News in its top 10 stories of 2008 highlighted the development of roads in the parish:
"The best thing to come to Livingston Parish from the surge in oil prices last year was a $100 million appropriation to widen I-12 east of O'Neal Lane into Livingston Parish. The fastest-growing parish in Louisiana received record attention....Other major projects benefitting our area includes the completion of a widening project for La. 16, now four-lane all the way from Watson to the interstate. Also, a new Florida Boulevard bridge across the Amite River is under construction"
