Are you looking to give back to your community? BREC needs volunteers to fulfill our mission of providing park and recreational opportunities for all residents of East Baton Rouge Parish. With a range of facilities and programs, BREC has a volunteer opportunity for everyone.
In keeping with our intent to provide the best possible services, we undergo a thorough volunteer screening process. As a result, we require volunteers to fill out an application and consent to a background check.
Registered volunteers who contribute 30 or more hours during a tax year and complete ethics training qualify for a $500 Louisiana State Income Tax deduction.

Historically Easter weekend is one of the busiest times of the year for BREC parks, as large groups traditionally gather to celebrate with picnics and crawfish boils. This year, to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, BREC is taking steps to prevent large gatherings while still making parks and trails available to people for walking, hiking, bicycle riding and other healthy activity while continuing physical distancing.
In accordance with the Stay at Home order issued by Governor John Bel Edwards, BREC will close playgrounds, dog parks and outdoor restrooms at the close of business today.
