Beau Jardin is the City of Natchitoches' water feature and garden area on the downtown riverbank, located within the Natchitoches Historic District. Beau Jardin is the perfect venue for weddings, rehearsal dinners, or setting for any intimate outdoor event.
Beau Jardin features a winding brick staircase that leads to a series of stone landings surrounded by iron work and curved brick walls. Along the staircase are a series of spectacular waterfalls flowing down the hillside with a series of smaller waterfalls, eventually flowing into a stream bed that flows into Cane River Lake. Wooden bridges allow visitors to cross from one section to another. Throughout the garden is native plants, flowers, and groundcover. A system of "up lighting" lights the waterfall, flower beds, and walkways.
