BATON ROUGE - Construction is underway on Baton Rouge's Repentance Park, the green space off River Road bordered on three sides by the River Center, the Old State Capital and City Hall.

The $3.5 million renovation is expected to be completed by Sept. 3.

The project is funded through state sales tax rebate money designated for downtown construction.

Davis Rhorer, director of the Downtown Development District, tells The Advocate the project is part of the overall greening of downtown Baton Rouge, which is an effort to make the area more attractive for people to enjoy festivals, outdoor concerts or just taking a break outside.
