What’s in Terrytown LA?

Terrytown is mostly residential, but a drive down Terry Parkway will let you find just about everything you need, close to home. There are plenty of fast food and drug store options, but you’d be remiss if you passed up the locally owned businesses. Terrytown Cafe was voted best donut in 2017. Majoria Drugs is one of the few mom and pop pharmacies in the metro area. Hi-Do Bakery has a line out of the door on Kings Day, when they start cranking out one of the best king cakes to be found.

There’s a fantastic playground and gymnasium for sports, a public library, the Golden Age Center, and Oakwood Center shopping mall. Annual events include the Food Truck Festival.

What about schools?

Terrytown residents send their kids to Jefferson Parish public schools or choose from one of the many parochial schools nearby.

What kind of homes will I find in Terrytown?
