You will see beautiful greenery, the lake, as well as plants and wildlife. Benches line the trail as well as distance markers.

Construction on a Hampton Inn in Fondren could start soon. The new Hampton would be built behind Babalu Tacos and Tapas. The unique thing is that the building will look historic on the outside and not like a regular Hampton Inn. This would be so cool! The project developers have also hired interior designers from this area to keep the Fondren look and feel on the inside as well. We think this is a great idea for the area. What do you think?
