Fontainebleau State Park Photographer: Eugene Brill
Fontainebleau State Park is located in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana, on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain. The park is 2,800 acres in size and was once the site of a sugar cane plantation and brickyard operated by Bernard de Marigny and later by his son Antoine James de Marigny. In the same area is the Big Branch Marsh National Wildlife Refuge and the Northlake Nature Center. Read the Nature Fieldnotes on the Northlake Nature Center here.
