As small country towns go, Walker Louisiana is a picture-perfect example. Five local baseball fields are the gathering spot for families on Saturday afternoons. Entertainment takes place in the Old South Jamboree — a 40-year-old red-barn building that hosts many country music stars. During the fall, Punk Smith Park hosts outdoor family movies. Apartment renting here is like stepping back in time.
But Walker is located only 20 minutes from downtown Baton Rouge and all of its art, history, culture, and restaurants. It has a thriving business district that includes employers such as Shaw Sunland Fabricators, Inc. and Custom Ecology, Inc. Major universities, including Louisiana State University, are just a short drive away.
This family-oriented community has top-rated schools and plenty of recreational activities for children. With 12 soccer fields and two parks with playgrounds, there’s plenty for families to do in Walker. Renting in Walker gives new residents the best of a small town and a major metro area.
