Our mission is to enhance the quality of life in Louisiana by uniting those engaged in the park and recreation profession.

To accomplish our mission, we will foster and maintain high professional qualification standards, training and ethics. We will stimulate a wider interest in the preservation and the development of the state’s recreational resources. We will serve as an information exchange for programs, activities and problem solutions. We will cooperate with other public/private related agencies. We will protect the park and recreation professional’s interests. We will analyze and initiate legislation pertaining to the profession.

LRPA's Annual Parks & Rec Day at the Capitol, "Where Community Grows." This day is for highlighting the value that parks and recreation brings to our local communities and to educate our legislators. If you have questions or need additional information, please email Susanne Diez, LRPA Executive Director, at sdiez@lma.org

Members enjoy many benefits including networking opportunities, educational events and up-to-date information on industry news. Join us today!
