My second favor place to walk in Baton Rouge is the Highland Road Park. It is located south of downtown, south of LSU, south of the Mall, but north of the Ascension Parish line. The 2/3 mile walking trail is located on a hill. Yes! This area of Baton Rouge has hills.
But, don’t stay on the concrete walking path. Go for an adventure. Take the paths the cross country athletes use for training, or walk the area the disc golfer use. It will take you into the trees, over bridges, to the tennis courts and splash pad. Beware, their are two dangers here: one rolling down a hill; and two to getting your shoes wet with dew if you are out early morning.
