The City of Zachary offers the convenience of a metropolitan area with all the charm of small-city living. This growing community topped the list this year among Louisiana cities, with one of the highest annual household estimated incomes.
Zachary’s best kept secret is its' public schools. Zachary Schools have ranked #1 in the State of Louisiana for the past thirteen years. This premier education system has positioned Zachary for continued growth. Zachary Schools are unique and operate in a "grade-center" concept. Grade centers allow for all students to learn in an environment that is smaller, more comfortable as they are surrounded by true peers, and nurturing to their specific age needs.
In Zachary you can get outside and enjoy yourself! Our BREC Parks are some of the finest in the area. Zachary Youth Park Complex offers programs year around for youth and adults of all ages. Zachary Community Park and the new Flanacher Road Soccer Park provide recreational facilities and offer a year-long schedule of activities and events.
The most important thing about Zachary is you! It is a community that hosts community events where it’s easy to get out and meet your neighbors. Every Saturday morning enjoy the Zachary Farmers' Market where farmers, artists and craftspeople from all areas of Zachary come to sell their goods. The Zachary Arts & Music Festival (Z-Fest) draws in large crowds to enjoy days of music, art, food and fun in the area.
