Prairieville is a bustling census-designated place in Ascension Parish, Louisiana, with approximately 33,000 people. This growing bedroom community of Baton Rouge has more people than the two incorporated cities in its parish, Donaldsonville, and Walker, combined. It gets its name from the many plains and prairies that used to be visible from Jefferson Highway before developers built more housing to accommodate the rising population. Recently, many people have moved away from the hustle and bustle of the capital for slower-paced locales, and this region has benefitted by becoming one of the fastest-growing communities in the state. The area is a great place to live for many reasons, including low crime rates and an excellent public school system.
