Community Centers

The centers are owned and operated by the West Baton Rouge Parish Council Parks and Recreation Department. Bookings/Rentals for the Addis, Addis VFW, Port Allen and the new Williams and Lee Centers are handled at the Parks and Recreation Office.

Bookings

Only West Baton Rouge Parish residents are allowed to book or rent any of the centers. Our books open every year on the first Mondays in April and October. April's book opening allows reservations for July through December of the current year, while October's book opening allows reservations for January through June of the following year. Dates may only be reserved if the book has been open for that half of the year. Weddings are the only exception to this rule.

Weddings

Weddings may be reserved one year to the date of the function. To book a wedding at any of West Baton Rouge Parish Centers, you must be a parish resident who is either the bride and/or the groom, or the parents/grandparents of either the bride or the groom. No other person is allowed to book the center for a wedding. If it is found out that the center was rented by another person who is not the bride and/or the groom, or the parents/grandparents of either the bride or the groom, the function will be canceled and all fees shall be forfeited.
