Independence Community Park

Independence Community Park

Adult Leisure Centers | All Parks | Community Park | Recreation Centers

96.02 Acres - This park is located in the center of East Baton Rouge Parish. Independence 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. The perimeter of the park is lined with hundreds of American flags. It is one of BREC's most popular and busiest parks, because of the number of facilities available.

Portions of this park are currently undergoing construction.
