Parks in Shreveport

<p>Although Shreveport is a city, residents have easy access to the outdoors. Richard Fleming Park, for example, is located on Fordney Bayou where it empties into Cross Lake. The 15-acre park offers two boat ramps, a 60-foot dock, a fishing pier, picnic tables with grills, a pavilion, two playgrounds, and a large grass playing field. Walter B. Jacobs Memorial Park, on the other hand, has an abundance of hiking trails, as well as a pavilion. Just outside the city are several larger parks, including Lake Bistineau State Park, which has cypress and tupelo trees and offers plenty of hiking, camping, biking, and fishing.</p>

Community Activities

<p>Shreveport has plenty to offer in the way of community activities. Markets, for example, have long had a place in the Shreveport community, and today the Shreveport Farmers' Market is held under the pavilions at Festival Plaza in Downtown Shreveport. Since it's a covered market, it takes place rain or shine. Shreveport festivals include Cinco De Mayo, Highland Jazz &amp; Blues Festival, Holiday in Dixie, Independence Bowl, Louisiana Film Prize, Mardi Gras, and The State Fair of Louisiana, held annually each autumn since 1906. In addition, the monthly "Movies &amp; Moonbeams" series occurs at Riverview Park &amp; R.S. Barnwell Memorial Center.</p>

Arts in Shreveport

<p>One of the best festivals of the year is the Red River Revel, an annual arts and music event that lasts for one week in the beginning of October. However, art-related events happen year-round in Shreveport, which is home to several theatres, museums, and performing arts groups. These include the Louisiana Dance Theatre, the Marjorie Lyons Playhouse and the Meadows Museum of Art, both located on the Centenary College Campus, the R. W. Norton Art Gallery, the River City Repertory Theatre, the RiverView Theatre, the Robinson Film Center, the Shreveport Metropolitan Ballet, the Shreveport Opera, the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra, the Southern University Museum of Art, and the Spring Street Museum.</p>
