Baton Rouge residents love soccer, and no place is their affection more evident than Saturday mornings at BREC’s Burbank Park. That is where thousands of youngsters and their parents gather for games on the fields. The Burbank Soccer Complex is the most visible element of the 248-acres that comprise Burbank Park. The complex includes 22 dedicated soccer fields that draw players as young as 3-years-old every day of the week throughout the year. Adult and co-ed leagues use its six lighted fields after sunset.

The park is also home to a newly opened dog park that includes separate play areas for large and small dogs and has a designated swim area for pups that want to cool off during the spring and summer months. The park is dotted with benches and water fountains, and includes a shaded pavilion and quarter-mile, paved walking path around the perimeter, which allows dog owners to exercise while their pets play. The park is free and open to the public during daylight hours. Additional park features include five baseball fields, a fishing pond and picnic tables
