  • I love this park! It's absolutely beautiful, and well maintained. Great place to fish, relax, or go for a run! 
  • It's good to visit, to pause. There are places to sit, relax unwind. There are places to be able to BBQ yourself, and large areas that have activities 
  • This is a beautiful family and pet family park. Great for walking with a lake as a backdrop. A local favorite! 
  • Our Lake Charles area volleyball team had decided to play a grass tournament in the prien lake park. They day of the tournament, we had went to the park to set up the volleyball courts. To keep the courts on the ground we had attempted to use U shaped, less than 1/8th inches by the way, canopy stakes. As we were putting these in the ground a park employee approached us and had told us that we were t aloud to put any of these stakes put in the ground. The explanation the police jury had was that they didn't know what was in the ground. So an eighth inch stake in the ground can mess up the grass? I mean come on. SHAME ON YOU PRIEN LAKE PARK!!
  • Lovely park. Great walking paths right on the water's edge, a boat launch, water play pool and wonderful views.
  • The park has a really nice paved walking/running track around it complete with exercise stations every few hundred meters. It has an excellent kayak launch as well.
  • Very nice park, free Wi-Fi, exercise course, picnic facilities, wonderful views.
  • We enjoyed the water park there with the grandson. Every one was finally on memorial day and there was no rowdiness though it was mildly crowded. The water
