SHREVEPORT, LA - The work is complete on brand new playground equipment at the Duck Pond Park on East Kings Highway.

SPAR posted this message on social media:

"We're thrilled to announce that the long-awaited upgrades at SPAR's Duck Pond are finally complete!"

There have been some delays because of weather and supply chain issues. The storm back in June also caused some damage at the park knocking down several trees. That mess had to be cleaned up before the work could get back underway.

But the park is back open and families are invited to come out and enjoy all the new playground equipment.

In addition to the duck pond, the park also features a picnic area, benches, and a 0.286 miles jogging/bike trail.
