storm in 2020.

New pavilion
Improved restrooms
Indoor and outdoor basketball court
Lighted baseball field
Additional program space
Storage areas

The project also added energy-efficient doors and windows and air conditioning for the first

It was an emotional day for Mayor McDavid, as his 82-year-old mother has worked for
BREC for over 50 years. He remembers using the park to practice basketball and attending
summer camps as a child. McDavid highlighted how many children in our community have
benefitted from everything BREC offers and the difference it continues to make in our city.


“I would like to thank BREC for their solid partnership with the City of Zachary,” said Mayor
David McDavid.

Officials attending the ribbon cutting included Zachary Councilwoman Ambre DeVirgilio,
Zachary Police Chief Darryl Lawrence, State Representative Barbara Carpenter, and Baker
Councilwoman Brenda Jackson.
