Plantation Estates: West Bank Neighborhood of the Week

For this week's neighborhood of the week, I took a drive through the winding streets of Plantation Estates in Marrero, LA.

Originally developed in 1979 by Marrero Land and Development, Plantation Estates is located off of Barataria Blvd., just south of Lapalco Blvd..  The location provides a quick commute to employees at West Jeff Medical Center and is a short distance from Highway 90 B (West Bank Expressway) with easy access to downtown New Orleans and the Central Business District.


The Plantation Estates Civic Association is charged with enforcing the neighborhood covenants and restrictions, including collection of the $60 per year home owners fee and the $280 per year security fee for community security patrols by Jefferson Parish Sheriff's officers.

Membership in the civic association also includes year round, family friendly events such as:

  • Garden of the Month awards
  • Spring Neighborhood Block Party
  • Annual Night out Against Crime
  • Pumpkin Painting Party
  • Visits by Santa Claus

What's Nearby?

  • Shopping at Home Depot, Super WalMart, Toys R Us, Circuit City and more.  Or, a short drive to Oakwood Center shopping mall.
  • Dining at national and local restaurants
  • PARD Playground, offering youth athletic programs
  • Only a few minutes away is Bayou Segnette State Park
