Due to high water, crews have blocked the main entrance to Burbank Park, the southern portion of Highland Road Community Park near the archery range and the Fairgrounds side of Airline Highway Park.
Also, BREC has closed Santa Maria Golf Course due to backwater from nearby Bayou Manchac as well as the back nine holes of Beaver Creek Golf Course in Zachary.
All other golf courses remain playable and will open on days when the weather allows.
As this wet weather continues, BREC does offer several indoor opportunities for the public to enjoy and get moving.
A few examples include:
· Interactive Room at Womack Park located on Florida Boulevard
· Indoor Track, Indoor Playground and Virtual Park at North Sherwood Forest
· Indoor Tennis Facility at Independence Park
· BREC Fitness Centers (North Sherwood, Womack Park, Webb Park and Santa Maria)
· Team Automotive Sportsplex at the Perkins Road Park
· Baton Rouge Gallery at City Park

It is the BREC mission to provide parks and recreational opportunities for all the citizens of East Baton Rouge Parish.
