Recreation and Park Commission

3140 N. Sherwood Forest Boulevard
Baton Rouge, LA 70814
The Recreation and Park Commission for the Parish of East Baton Rouge was created by a State Legislative Act in 1946 as a separate and distinct body whose purpose is to develop, maintain and operate public park and recreational properties and facilities for all the people in East Baton Rouge Parish. BREC is a political subdivision of the State of Louisiana and does not operate under the City-Parish Government. 

Money for financing land purchases, construction of facilities, maintenance, and the operation of many varied programs is obtained from tax voted on by the citizens of East Baton Rouge Parish, and from income from facilities, concessions and programs. Other funds come from local governmental agencies and the federal government. 

The Commission is composed of nine members, six of whom are appointed, two each year, to serve a three-year term, by the Metro Council; and three of whom are ex-officio members, these being the Mayor-President, a member of the School Board, and a member of the City-Parish Planning Commission. The Commisssion members receive no compensation for their services, but accept their appointments in the interest of civic betterment. 

Programs, facilities and services of BREC are available to all citizens regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.
