Rich in Culture and Character

St. Bernard Parish is located just five miles downriver from and to the east of New Orleans’s Central Business District (CBD) and the French Quarter. Boasting an outstanding transportation infrastructure – complete access to water, motor, and rail freight transportation and only 20 miles from Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport – St. Bernard Parish is the second largest parish in Louisiana by total area, more than 80% of which is water. With its extensive water access, St. Bernard offers a proud and prosperous home for the flourishing petrochemical, energy, seafood processing, and commercial fishing industries.
