 LETTER FROM SUPERINTENDENT COREY WILSON
   Dear BREC Families,
We are excited to bring back the printed version of our Play Book for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began and it is loaded with back to school and holiday fun for you and your family and friends. Our popular Pool Pawty is back as Liberty
Lagoon goes to the dogs for the last day of the pool season. After that event, we will keep portions of the park open for some surf and slide fun as the Wave Rider and slides will stay open through the warm weather in September.
Ready to dance? It has been too long since we’ve been able to host the popular Tea Dance and Sunshine Socials at the Womack Park ballroom but get ready to put those dancing shoes on as the popular programs for Seniors and young adults with disabilities are back in person again this fall! Our fall sports leagues are looking for teams and former LSU great Nick Brossette is teaming up with BREC to offer speed and agility trainings at Kathy Drive Park as well as a free fall football camp at Memorial Stadium. You will also find rugby, lacrosse, tennis, golf and kickball as part of our fall and winter sports programming.
There are also many opportunities to enjoy the beautiful fall weather with our Outdoor Adventure and Conservation teams who will lead campouts, paddling events, hikes, mountain biking and much more. You can also take one of our guided horseback trail rides at
Farr Park Equestrian Center or volunteer to work with our popular Hearts and Hooves Program which provides therapeutic horseback riding for children with disabilities. We are very excited that Brew at the Zoo will be held again this fall. The fundraiser gives adults the chance to enjoy the Zoo at night, sample beer and food from restaurants across the parish.
As always, BREC will have holiday celebrations galore including the beloved Boo at the Zoo event, Swamp Haunted Hikes, Spooky Spectrum, Pumpkin Paddle Parade and Trick or Treat Unleashed. We will have some new events as well including a Boo’vie in the Park, a showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, Jack-eaux-lantern carving, and a Halloween trail run. Our holiday camps will be in full swing during school holiday vacations and in December, we will bring back the month-long Zoo Lights event, Let it Sneaux and the Reindeer Ride.
This guide is filled with so many ways for you, your family and friends to remain active, make memories and enjoy your beautiful park system that I can’t list them all. It is exciting to see all of the activity after the challenges of last year and we look forward to making this fall special.
Corey K. Wilson, BREC Superintendent
