Spring has sprung, and there are so many great things coming to life here at BREC Foundation.
The Red Stick Croquet Club is proud to partner with the Recreation and Park Commission for the Parish of East Baton Rouge (BREC) to build a tournament croquet court at City-Brooks Community Park. This new facility will be next to the tennis courts near the intersection of Magnolia Drive and Dalrymple Drive. The project will include a covered pavilion, patio, and arbor, making it a great place for the community to relax and take in the game.
The American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration (AAPRA), in partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), is pleased to announce the Recreation and Park Commission for East Baton Rouge (BREC) as a finalist for the 2016 National Gold Medal Awards for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management. Musco Lighting LLC has been a proud sponsor of the Gold Medal Awards program for over 10 years.
The new Turner Family Visitor Center features a contemporary design. Its design reveals a distinct line between the modern facility and exhibit. Depending on where guests stand on the grounds, the visitor’s center is mostly hidden from view. Visitors will see the new facility upon arrival, but as they walk the grounds only the roof can be seen. The roof has a green roof system that features natural vegetation. The 4,100 square foot visitor center includes a gift shop, restrooms, a large meeting room or event room that could be used for educational exhibits and a 60-seat auditorium.
