The Recreation Center at Forest Community Park is currently undergoing renovations and will be closed until further notice. All activities originally scheduled to take place at Forest Community Park will now take place at Kathy Drive Park.

This park is located in the southeastern part of East Baton Rouge Parish. Forest Community Park serves a larger geographic area than a neighborhood park and is designed to engage the entire family for a whole day. Higher levels of maintenance, security, and recreational opportunities are offered at community parks. BREC reopened the park in 2010. It features re-defined vehicular and pedestrian circulation throughout the park while improving upon the existing baseball/softball fields and the recreation center.
