BREC to Host Open Houses at Flannery Road and Plank Road Parks

BREC will host a community open house at Flannery Road Park, located at 801 Flannery Road, on April 18 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in order to give residents in the area a voice in the creation of a Master Plan for improvements to the park.  

 

Residents can come to the Flannery Road recreation center any time between 4:30-6:30 p.m. to look at drawings which will illustrate different options for renovations to the park, discuss their ideas with BREC Planning and Engineering staff and to fill out a survey which will help determine the final decision.

 

In November, BREC staff joined volunteers from Humana, KaBOOM, neighborhood residents and community groups to rebuild the Flannery Road Park playground in just six hours. This public meeting is the next step in planned improvements to the park which will be funded by the Imagine Your Parks tax plan which was approved by voters in 2004.

 

Flannery Road Park serves the Sherwood Forest/Florida Boulevard area of East Baton Rouge. Current amenities include a recreation center, indoor basketball court, KaBOOM playground and lighted baseball field.
