EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH, LA — BREC will host a community open house at Kathy Drive Neighborhood Park, located at 1801 Kathy Drive, on October 17 from 4:00 -7:00 p.m. The open house forum will give residents in the area a voice in the creation of a long-term master plan for improvements to the park.
Residents can come to the Kathy Drive recreation center to look at master plan alternatives illustrating different options for the park improvements.
Attendees can discuss their own ideas with BREC Planning staff members and complete questionnaires which will be used to develop a final master plan design.
Initial phased improvements will be funded by the Imagine Your Parks tax plan which was approved by voters in 2004. Construction of the first phase improvements will begin in 2014.
Kathy Drive Park serves Baton Rouge residents who live near Millerville and O’Neal Lane just off of I-12. The park currently has a recreation center, playground, indoor basketball courts, lighted baseball fields and football fields.
