Walker is a residential community in southeast Louisiana near the intersection of routes 190 and 447, just southeast of Baton Rouge. These highways, along with Interstate 12 to the south, make Walker in a great location for short commutes to neighboring communities or longer trips to the capital or New Orleans, which is about an hour away. Homes for rent give parents the chance to raise their children in a community that has several schools as well as many other families nearby for play dates and dinner parties. Kids will also enjoy Punk Smith Park and Sidney Hutchinson Park, which feature baseball diamonds and athletic fields for organized and backyard sports.
Families should move to Walker if they want to live in a spacious city near the state's two largest cities, with a welcoming community and plenty of natural beauty.
