Climbing in Opelousas

Select Local Merchants

Rök Haus poses challenges for all levels of climber via wall surfaces that span from introductory routes to treacherous inversions, which summon strength and smarts from even the most accomplished scrambler. The friendly staff keeps a lookout for safety while competitive climbers try to navigate the central climbing boulder’s circuitous network of pathways, ensuring that the climbers do not seek guidance by bribing a local troll with Tootsie Rolls. Between ascents, climbers can take a break from the rigorous physical and mental exertion on one of the couches in the relaxation area adjacent to the climbing walls.

Most parks are good for picnickers and unscrupulous Frisbee collectors. But Perkins Road Community Park amps up the adrenaline factor for thrill seekers with a grab bag of exciting sports, including skateboarding, rock climbing, BMX racing, and rainbow-trout fishing. A extreme sports–themed community playground keeps kids occupied, whereas competitive folks cycle to nowhere in the velodrome—one of just a handful in the United States—or spar on sand volleyball courts. More traditional recreational offerings include tennis courts, walking paths, a soccer field, and a baseball field.
