Moncus Park is a supporter-funded nonprofit dedicated to developing and maintaining these 100-acres of greenspace, showcasing the cultures and talents of Acadiana, uniting communities through celebration, and creating traditions together.
For 100 years, this space belonged to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and was used for agricultural education purposes. In 2005, while under threat of commercial development, a community wide campaign to “Save the Horse Farm” allowed this property to be purchased from the university to turn it into a world-class park. In 2018, the "Horse Farm" now named Moncus Park, signed a 100-year lease with the city of Lafayette as a promise to develop, maintain, and operate this incredible greenspace!
Today, Moncus Park is not just a park—it's a tourist attraction and economic generator with an impact on the fiscal, social, economic, environmental, cultural, physical, and mental health of Acadiana and its residents. Help us secure the future of Moncus Park by becoming a member, volunteering, or donating. Visit www.moncuspark.org/support to keep Moncus Park thriving for generations to come.
