Shreveport’s Duck Pond Park Getting Upgrade
Shreveport Parks and Recreation recently announced they have begun demolition and removal of old playground equipment to make room for a new, updated playground area at the Duck Pond on East Kings Highway. According to the SPAR Facebook page:
After a few unavoidable delays, work has begun to make upgrades to the playground equipment at the Duck Pond. The contractor tells us it should take about four weeks to complete. Along with this work at the Duck Pond, upgrade projects are also underway at Cedar Grove and A.C. Steere parks.
So far this year, SPAR has completed park upgrades at Anderson Island, Hattie Perry, Mamie Hicks, and A.B. Palmer parks. SPAR is also in the planning phase to make upgrades this year for Betty Virginia and Princess Park.
Exciting changes are happening!
Did you know that, technically, the park's official name is East Kings Highway Park. But it's called the Duck Pond by locals for a very obvious reason... the large number of ducks that call the park home.
According to SPAR, upgrades are also taking place at other Shreveport parks, including Cedar Grove and A.C. Steere parks.
In addition to the duck pond, the park also features a picnic area, benches, and a 0.286 miles jogging/bike trail.
The construction is expected to take about a month to complete.
