Shreveport Outdoor Activities
There's nothing like taking in an area's natural beauty. Shreveport is no exception, with the Red River running through the city helping to create a habitat for a collection of creatures and outdoor spectacles that give the area part of its identity. From parks to zoos to specialized attractions, there's always a special component of nature alive in every corner of Shreveport.
The Olde Covered Bridge Gardens
features an ever changing bouquet of flowering plants all surrounding this historic bridge in one of the most visually captivating corners of the city.
You'll find that this is a great place for spending time outdoors.

If the angler in you is ready to leave the workweek behind and start relaxing by catching some fish, Barron's Landing and Marina
is the perfect place to escape. A great, friendly staff will make your time behind the fishing rod as stress-free as possible. It's your choice to either fish in the marina, where reeling in large bass is a frequent occurrence, or you can rent a Jon boat for only $40 and head out on your own. Either way, a great fishing excursion is only a few minutes away!
