Dugas Community Park is named for the Dugas family, headed by Laura Jo and Wayne Dugas. Laura Jo is a Scottsville native and the daughter of the late Cal Turner, Sr., the founder of Dollar General Stores. Wayne was a native of Des Allemands, Louisiana. The couple lived in the residence which serves as the office for the Friends of Dugas Community Park from 1963 to 1990. Here they raised their sons, Foster, Steve and Bruce. Through the family’s generous donation of over 240 acres, and the formation of an operating endowment, it is the family’s hope and dream that this Park will be a treasure for the citizens of Scottsville and Allen County for generations to come.
