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.


This year LRPA is turning 78, and we are in the process of planning another exciting convention. There will be educational sessions that will tackle a wide range of topics. The date and location is still being determined. We will update all conference information as it becomes available. LRPA would like to thank all its members, vendors, and sponsors for their continued support during this difficult time. If you have further questions please email Brandon Brewer lrpa@lma.org

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