A Sulphorous City

With a town named after a mineral that has such a pungent smell as sulfur, it is a good thing the days of mining and manufacturing are long since passed. Originally, this was a boon for the city as it gave much of the initial development and infrastructure visible today. The reason sulfur mining here was so profitable was a technique created by German immigrant Herman Frasch, dubbed the “Frasch Method.” This essentially involved pumping hot steam into the ground to extract the mineral and was a highly efficient way of mining. Frasch still has a local park named after him to commemorate his achievements.

Creole Nature Trail

One of the highlights of Sulphur is its access to the Creole Nature Trail, just a few miles outside of town. This natural bird habitat and wetland trail is a high point for visitors and locals alike. No matter what season you visit, you are bound to see some gorgeous views, scenic trails, and tons of wildlife. It is an opportunity to only get out and enjoy the great outdoors, and also learn a little something while you do. They even have an application to guide you through the sprawling park trails and give you some background on the local flora and fauna.

SPAR Water Park

What better way to enjoy a hot Louisiana summer day than at the water park. Sulphur Parks and Rec is one of the few city departments that has taken it upon themselves to build a massive public park dedicated to fun in the sun and water adventures. There is a huge kid-friendly splash and play island, a lagoon pool for adults, a body and tube slide, and even a lazy river to float. They just expanded to include a raging river and rolling waves as well. This is the perfect place to take the kids and unwind after a long week at work.
