The Parks and Recreation Commission of Carencro (PARC) provides recreational opportunities for the citizens of Carencro, with the assistance of the Lafayette Parish Parks and Recreation Department. Information about PARC meetings is available here.
Carencro’s Pelican Park has been modernized with improved drainage and updated artificial turf infields. As a result of the improvements, very few games are canceled due to inclement weather. The park hosts youth and high school baseball, co-ed league softball and league flag football. There is also a concert stage that hosts the Mercredi Show concert series twice a year. The park is ideal for special events and large-scale entertainment in the off-season, November through January. For more information on special events reservations, call 337-896-5000.
The Carencro Sports Complex, formerly an ice hockey complex, has been converted into an indoor turf field for soccer, flag football, lacrosse, kickball, knocker ball or any sport played on turf. The air-conditioned complex is open year-round, and can be reserved for parties. For more information on special events reservations, call 337-896-5000.
The Carencro Area Youth Sports, Inc. (CAYSI) is a volunteer organization that coordinates programs for boys and girls, ages 5 – 16, in baseball, basketball, football, softball and volleyball.
