Leesville Lions Club Pro Rodeo

The Leesville Lions Club Rodeo is much anticipated throughout the region. It kicks off every year on the Thursday prior to the first full weekend in October, with unofficial trail rides from most communities in the parish. Riders generally finish up the day by riding in the Rodeo Parade that afternoon and many will stay for the Grand Entry at the rodeo that night. 4-H rodeo-ers compete in several categories each night before the professional rodeo begins.
High school girls from each school also compete in the Rodeo Queen contest. The participants sell rodeo tickets prior to the rodeo and demonstrate their horsemanship skills each night during the rodeo.

Liberty Garden

Liberty Garden, our newest park, was created as an initiative of the Keep American Beautiful program to establish a place of natural beauty that will honor the memory of those who have perished in acts of terrorism and reaffirm the principles of freedom and liberty on which our country was built. Liberty Garden continues to grow through the efforts of the Keep Leesville Beautiful Committee, the Leesville Mayor's Women's Commission and the local Boy Scout Troop 75. The boy scouts have conducted several Eagle Scout projects in the park, such as the construction of a bench-lined deck and two bridges. The deck is used for social gatherings of all kinds including concerts and other community activities.
