Cleaner, cheaper, healthier energy is here. It’s time for leaders across the U.S. to commit to 100% clean and renewable energy for all, and that’s exactly what Abita Springs has done! Abita Springs made that commitment in March 2017, when the Mayor and Town Council adopted a Resolution to give Abita Springs residents and businesses electricity from renewable sources by 2030.
Friends of the Park is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization founded in 2007.

We are dedicated to providing a variety of activities, special events, facilities, and services that collectively enrich the lives of all patrons.
Keep Abita Beautiful (KAB) is a civic organization that was formed in 2016 for the purpose of encouraging litter prevention, recycling and beautification in Abita Springs. KAB is especially proud of the almost 200 Adopt-A-Spot volunteers who have committed to keeping their area of Abita Springs litter free. Recycling is encouraged by KAB through outreach at community events. In 2017, KAB was instrumental in the Town of Abita Springs winning the Cleanest City Contest through beautification efforts.
As an affiliate of Keep Louisiana Beautiful and Keep America Beautiful, KAB has received numerous grants and awards and has been recognized as a member of the “President’s Circle” by both the state and national organizations. In 2018, Keep Abita Beautiful became a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.
