An important component of the LRPD is the Therapeutic Recreation Program, which offers recreational and leisure opportunities to senior citizens as well as disabled children and adults. The Therapeutic Recreation Program also works with area law enforcement
personnel to help at-risk citizens learn new recreation and coping skills.
Programs are listed as events on Lafayette Parks and Recreation Facebook page.
Walking to New Orleans Senior Walking Program
The Lafayette Parks and Recreation Department is excited about “Movin' Onto Mobile” senior walking program for anyone 50 and older. The goal is to reach 145 miles – the distance from New Orleans to Mobile. The program is free; participants can join anytime. CDC guidelines will be followed. No sign up is necessary. Walkers are encouraged to download the FREE “Nike Run Club” app and enter the challenge. This app will track your miles whenever you walk, and you can track the progress of others in the challenge.
The bingo program is open to any adult with disabilities and seniors aged 50 and older. This program is free to the participants. This program will be conducted within CDC guidelines and social distancing recommendations to ensure participant safety.
