IberiaBank announces $1 million donation for Moncus Park construction

IberiaBank representatives took the opportunity Wednesday night announce a $1,000,000 contribution toward construction of Moncus Park at the Horse Farm.

The donation was made public as Moncus Park, formerly known as the UL Horse Farm, celebrated its third annual “An Evening Under the Oaks… A Celebration in the Park” gala.

More than 300 guests enjoyed food, live music, and a raffle for a $5,000 shopping spree.

At the event, designs for the park’s Farmers Market Pavilion were unveiled. This open-air pavilion is the future home of the weekly Lafayette Farmers and Artisans Market held each Saturday morning.

Construction on Phase 1 is set to begin at the end of the year. Planned projects include the new pavilion, a dog park, walking trails, tree houses and a pond.
