Dog Areas in Destrehan

Destrehan is an area of Louisiana with a population of more than 11,000 people. The area is best known for the Destrehan Plantation, which was once a major producer of indigo and sugarcane, and it's only 25 miles from New Orleans. Today, the Destrehan Plantation is a historic site that draws tourists from all over to take in the architectural elements of the mansion and to learn more about its history. Destrehan is also home to many families and people who commute to bigger cities for work. Dog owners and those who enjoy the outdoors will love living in an area with such a warm climate.

There may not be an off-leash dog park in Destrehan, but with its proximity to big cities like New Orleans, you're never more than a short drive from a great park! The Audubon neighborhood of western New Orleans is just over 20 miles from Destrehan. This is where you'll find The Dog Levee, a wide open off-leash space that isn't fenced in. This park features a paved walking trail that leads to a swimming hole where Fido can swim and splash to his heart's content -- just be sure to bring a towel! If you're looking for a fenced off-leash space, fear not, because there are plenty of those near Destrehan, too!
