Parish President Tommy Martinez

I love Ascension Parish, its people, and all we have to offer. Whether you are a resident or a visitor, it should soon become obvious to you why we are one of the fastest growing parishes in Louisiana.

Our community is like a gumbo: rich in culture, tradition, history and diversity.

As you travel throughout the parish, you will see the mighty Mississippi River and the diverse industries that line its banks, the historic town of Donaldsonville, and beautiful plantation homes. Whatever you do, be sure to sample our delicious Cajun cuisine and experience southern hospitality at its finest.

If you are planning to move to Ascension Parish, you should know that we pride ourselves on having an exemplary public school system, as well as being home to various technical and community colleges.

We welcome you to Ascension Parish, and may your experience with us be memorable.
