Shreveport Common Selected as a 2020 AARP Community Challenge Grantee

Shreveport Common, Inc. has been selected to receive an AARP Community Challenge grant. 184 grantees were selected from across all 50 states, Washington D.C, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The “quick-action” grant will provide installation of 8 permanent tables and seating at the Art Bosque Food Truck Court in The Caddo Common park, located at 869 Texas Ave. in Shreveport Common. The AARP tables will be installed this Fall, marking the beginning of Phase II additions to the community-informed, artist-designed park. City of Shreveport will provide installation of the AARP tables and Shreveport Regional Arts Council is creatively repurposing a box truck to a mobile kiosk for checking out games for use in the park.
