Shreveport Public Assembly & Recreation is preparing a plan for outdoor recreation along the Clyde Fant Parkway, says Tim Wachtel. After considering public comments from our Recreation Master Plan and working with a panel of local experts in recreation, conservation, special events, zoning, and history, we prepared a 2nd Draft for public comment. You can see it here.

This draft is intended to be a starting point for a community discussion of the future development of outdoor recreation along the Clyde Fant Parkway. We care what you and your neighbors think, so let us know! You are free to comment any way you please: phone, fax, mail or email.

Please send your comments to:
Tim Wachtel, ASLA, Planner III, 505 Travis Street, Suite 560, Shreveport, LA 71101
Phone: (318) 673-7721/Fax (318) 673-7878
Email: timothy.wachtel@ci.shreveport.la.us (Please put “Parkway Plan” in the Subject line.)

We are also having an "Open House" for the Plan on Thursday June 26 from 5 to 8 pm at the pavilion at the Stoner S'port Marina. This is not a "meeting," so you can stop by at your convenience to see the plan, discuss your ideas, and "vote" on what you like and don't like.

This seems like a great idea. Its funny because i was walking with my parents along the existing walking/biking paths a month ago and discovered the veterans park lake. I never knew it existed. I think that section of Clyde Fant is a great place to put focus on due to its existing use and its potential for even more use.
