Have you been to Highland Park lately?

They’re up!

Four mile markers featuring fun facts about the history of Highland are now along the multi-use path at Highland Park. Highland Restoration Association worked with FusiForm Design Workshop to design and fabricate the markers. Shreveport Public Recreation and Assembly generously offered to install them. 

This was a fun project that HRA hopes will encourage more residents to visit this neighborhood park. So next time you’re out that way, go check them out.
