View All Neighborhoods

Walnut Grove in Lake Charles, a TND (Traditional Neighborhood Development), is situated along the banks of picturesque Contraband Bayou and blends a residential neighborhood with retail and office space. When fully developed, the 60-acre community will include a town square, post office, grocery, parks, additional shops, businesses and restaurants all within a five-minute walk.

Listings range from $200,000 to $1 million, with available lots making it possible for families to design and build a home suiting their specific needs. The Walnut Grove Institute is a progressive neighborhood initiative dedicated to preserving the natural environment and ensuring sustainable growth.

  • Parks/Outdoor

    Hallmark TND qualities include convenience for pedestrians — retail outlets and restaurants are within walking distance of residents' homes. Lake Charles’ Walnut Grove also includes generous green space for residents to utilize. Nine planned parks will include children’s play structures and a boardwalk stretching into an estuary at the edge of the neighborhood. Walnut Grove is also close to Lake Charles' downtown marina.

  • Shopping

    Walnut Grove’s growing list of on-site retailers includes an upscale farm-to-table restaurant, a bank and a host of other tailored shops and services. The area is minutes from a major shopping district and the popular Prien Lake Mall.
