The Broussard City Council has agreed to accept Trahan Construction's bid for the first phase of the 122-acre St. Julien Park project.
Trahan Construction, the same company that recently completed the Youngsville Sports Complex, bid $2.3 million for completion of the maintenance building and the concession stands for the soccer fields.
Plans for the park include baseball and softball fields, six soccer fields, eight tennis courts, outdoor volleyball and basketball courts and an indoor recreation center. There will be two playground areas - one with standard play equipment and the other a water-themed area for children to cool off in the summer months.
The total costs of building the park are estimated at $25 million to $27 million.
The Advocate reports the council accepted the bid Tuesday.
