In a couple weeks, Phase 1 of Moncus Park will begin.

The anticipation has been building for months.

Now the reality of this park will be taking effect.

Local residents have had an opportunity to give their input on what specific amenities they would like to see the park include.

There are almost 100 acres of land at Moncus Park.

The hope is that when this park is complete, it will help attract business professionals to Lafayette.

Phase 1 is expected to take a year to a year in a half to complete.
