A Tradition Worth Preserving
Goodwood Property Owner's Association

The neighborhood referred to as Old Goodwood or Goodwood Place was developed beginning in 1932 on parts of the 2,000 acres that comprised Goodwood Plantation. The Goodwood Plantation home is located on Goodwood Ave., slightly west of Lobdell Ave. Built around 1852, the plantation home was said to be the first house in Baton Rouge to have running water, bathrooms, bathtub, shower and built-in washstands.

Goodwood is a diverse but tightly knit neighborhood that includes homes ranging from modest bungalows to $1 million-plus mansions. While many Goodwood residents have lived in their homes for decades, younger families with school-age children are among new homeowners flocking to the neighborhood.

Despite a great deal of commercialization around the edges, Goodwood has maintained its neighborhood qualities — thanks largely to a vigilant and active Goodwood Property Owners Association (GPOA).

The association is 100 percent volunteer driven, managed on a day-to-basis by its Board of Directors. Since GPOA is involved in such a wide range of projects, volunteers are needed and welcomed to keep the organization functioning for the good of all residents. Residents in areas that want to be involved for specific localized goals or projects are encouraged to volunteer. The Board of Directors continues to focus on addressing the needs and requests of the membership and must have support and input from residents to be successful.
To all PPP Vacation requestors,
The Vacation Watch Request form creates an automated database report to our PPP coordinator that is shared with our PPP Officers. All fields on the request form must be filled out and due to high volumes of requests, ONLY requests submitted via the form will be submitted to PPP.
