The upcoming construction signals the start of future expansion plans to keep up with usage at what has become one of the parish's most popular recreational facilities.

Director of Parks and Recreation, Warren Saucier, told police jury members Wednesday that the four additional fields will be put to multiple uses and will help involve additional activities.

"We already have youth and adult soccer, lacrosse and football teams using athletic fields for practice and league competition, and we have baseball and softball practice fields available," Saucier said. "With these additional fields, I believe more organizations will be looking at us as a place to play and practice."

Already, South Bossier Park is home to events including high school cross country meets and youth league football and soccer.

Additionally, the North Louisiana Football Alliance, a five-team semi-professional adult league, will be playing several games at the park during its 2023 schedule.

Money to help pay for the additional fields will come from a $75,000 grant from the state Department of the Treasury.
