In preparation for Slidell’s Bayou Christmas, a portion of Bayou Lane (from Pennsylvania Ave. to the Heritage Park Boat Launch) that runs through Heritage Park will be closed to vehicular traffic from Thursday, Nov. 10, 2022, to Tuesday, January 3, 2023 for the installation of Christmas lights and for holiday events happening in Heritage Park.

Access to the Heritage Park Boat Launch will not be obstructed. The children’s playground area will also remain open, but parking immediately next to the playground will not be accessible. Guests should park in the shell parking lot on the corner of Bayou Lane and Pennsylvania Ave. or near the boat launch.
