Live Alligators – Artificial Trees

Set within the Tunica-Biloxi Tribe’s Paragon Hotel & Casino in Marksville, Louisiana, is a 5-story tall atrium which encases an enormous, Cajun inspired, man-made swamp, which even features live alligators. This massive bayou, bordered by French Quarter styled architecture and wide wooden-plank walkways, hosts seven towering 40’-45’ tall, moss-draped, Artificial Bald Cypress Trees created by Plantworks.

Plantworks worked closely with the tribe’s design and construction teams to tailor-make each one of these magnificent artificial cypress trees to their exact specifications. Built on a super-structure of cast steel plates and pipes the trees were embellished with over 15,000 individual pieces of flame retardant draping foliage that has and continues to thrill guests of the property.
