Pavilion Rental Information

Contact Information: 225-273-6409

All parks are still first-come, first-serve for picnic pavilion usage. However, park users can now rent pavilions in a growing number of  BREC parks. These park sites are in high demand. Renting a picnic pavilion allows the park user to have some "peace of mind" when preparing a child's birthday party, family reunion or association gathering at that park. If you rent a pavilion, then there is no reason to go to the park to "stake out" your tables and pavilion ahead of time. The site will be clean and ready upon your arrival.
