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 GPOI 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.
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. We request 48 hours lead time, but know that is not always possible. We do include late requests in the database when possible.
Councilman Ryan Heck and the PPP Coordinator have shared some good information related to issues reported in the area. Please check out the information on the PPP Update page.

Please add, and to your approved message sources. We are working to simplify communications by using the accounts in an effort to standardize the process for the board and residents. If you don't get a response within 48 hours of submitting a request, feel free to contact That account is monitored by iPhone more than we would like to admit.

Based on conversations recently on Facebook, we need to be vigilant and do not hesitate to call 389-2000 (BRPD) if you see something out of place or suspicious. If a report is filed, please share the file number with the so that officers can monitor the status of any report and do follow-up as needed. If you feel threatened, use 911

4th of July
We hope that all of our neighbors enjoy the 4th of July holidays. We want to remind everyone that it is illegal to use fireworks in the city limits. This has been an issue in Old Goodwood in the past and we as an association have done our best to address the problem. GPOA has a “zero tolerance policy” when it comes to fireworks use. We have scheduled additional private police patrol hours during the evening hours and have informed our officers to work to enforce the city ordinance addressing fireworks. Residents should report any violation of this ordinance to BRPD at 389-2000. We do not have round the clock PPP officers on our payroll and do not have the finances to have them work every evening during the 4th but we have increased our work hours and will do the best we can to enforce this city ordinance.
