On Saturday, May 25, 2019 a dedication ceremony was held for Leo Ehrhardt Central Park. The non-profit organization R.I.S.E. raised money to purchase a bronze plaque honoring Mr. Leo Erhardt after the Simmesport Town Council passed a resolution in 2017 naming the park after Mr. Leo. The ceremony took place at 10 AM and many of Mr. Leo’s family came from out of town to be part of the festivities, including his two children Mary and Leo “Lonny” Jr. Mr. Leo was Mayor of Simmesport for 40 years and dedicated much of his life to the Town. It is the hope of RISE and the Town of Simmesport that the park will become a beautiful, safe place for children to play and enjoy.
