New skate park set to open on Perkins Rd
BREC Perkins Road Community Park receives $5 million overhaul
BATON ROUGE, La (WGMB)--There's a new home for skaters in south Louisiana
The BREC Perkins Road Community Park is set for re-opening this Saturday. The 52 acre park features a state-of-the-art skate park, BMX track and cycling stadium--among other things.
BREC worked with several companies to complete the project, including a California-based firm that specializes in extreme sports facilities.
The $5 million renovation was funded by a parish tax and private donations.
It all kicks off at 10am at 7122 Perkins Road.
Festivities at this event will include recreational activities, skate demonstrations, food, music and fun. This event is free and open to the public.
