[ARCHIVED] City of Shreveport urges citizens to exercise caution along Red River

Red River Flooding

The City of Shreveport urges all citizens to exercise extreme caution in areas affected by the rising water along the Red River.

Citizens should obey all laws and ordinances. SPAR has closed the park and asks that citizens refrain from going around the closed gate to enter the park. No vehicles or pedestrians are allowed to access closed parks due to high water and flooding.

At this time, the Clyde Fant walking/biking path remains open. However, there are areas of the pathway that are under water. Citizens are urged to use caution and not go through the water.

SPAR offers several alternative pathways to the Clyde Fant pathway. Some other areas for walking and jogging include the Fern Avenue trail, Betty Virginia Park, A. C. Steere Park, Bill Cockrell Park, Southern Hills Park and Mamie Hicks Park.
