One of the best parts of Louisiana is its ability to wow you with its scenery just as much as its history. A mesmerizing nature park near Baton Rouge and New Orleans will leave you amazed by its natural beauty and the story behind it. It's no wonder so many people call Louisiana home; its neverending wonders make you never want to leave.

Brownell Memorial Park and Carillon Tower is a sight to see in Morgan City, which is considered to be "right in the middle of everywhere."

Its location is easily accessible for Baton Rouge and New Orleans residents, both of which have to make a little over an hour's drive to get there. 

A former member of one of Louisiana’s pioneer families gifted the site and it has since added a great deal of character to Morgan City.

The tower within Brownell Memorial Park will remind you of the tower Rapunzel was trapped in from the stories from our childhoods, while the park holds greenery that's unlike anything you've ever seen in the wonderous Pelican State.

While exploring the 9.5-acre park, you'll run into incredible views of the tower from different vantage points, as well as plants, trees, and wildlife.

There are swamps nearby that make it easy for such life to flourish. You can stop by Swamp Base to experience a true adventure on the water.

The park is even a designated bird sanctuary, so you know you'll run into a few of those guys.

If you happen to be in the park on the first Sunday of every month, the bell from the tower rings at 1 p.m.

You don't want to miss out on it, or any aspect of this gorgeous park!
