Beginning Saturday, March 18, Moncus Park will offer free shuttle rides from Blackham Coliseum to accommodate the influx of community members and tourists on Saturday mornings.
Park visitors wishing to use this convenient shuttle option can park at Blackham Coliseum’s Cabbage Patch Lot and take a free, fast shuttle to Moncus Park from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. every Saturday.
Moncus Park is grateful for the outpouring of support from the Acadiana community. In only its second year of operations, the Park is experiencing record-breaking attendance, with nearly 7,000 people visiting the Park each weekend. Moncus Park appreciates the patience of the Acadiana community while the team and Board of Directors work to find long-term logistical and operational on-site parking accommodations.
“The Park has quickly become a regional asset, tourist destination, and economic driver, and we hope that with the community’s support, we can continue to build upon this strong foundation we have created together,” said JP MacFadyen, executive director. “We ask that the community respect neighboring business’s parking needs and encourage you to take advantage of this free shuttle to visit the Park and support the Lafayette Farmers and Artisans Market vendors and the dozens of other community partners and entrepreneurs who utilize this space each week.”
Thank you to our partners, the University of Louisiana Lafayette and Lafayette Transit System, for making this possible.
