Boom or Bust Byway

The Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau won a Love Our Byways – Conservation and Beautification Grant from the Toyota Motor North America and National Scenic Byway Foundation to update two local parks on the Boom or Bust Byway.

On Saturday, Sept. 25 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. we will host byway clean-ups and placement of eight new picnic tables along the Boom or Bust Byway.  Robert L. Nance Park located at 14770 Odom Road in Hosston and Plain Dealing Lake Park located at 199 Lake Farm Road in Plain Dealing will each receive four tables.

Volunteers are sought to clean up the areas near the parks then enjoy a complimentary fish fry. Free t-shirts will be given to each volunteer, as well as trash collection tools. If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the form. Your participation is extremely valuable. Please complete the form below to sign up for this important project.

The Boom or Bust Byway is a 136-mile road trip through Caddo, Bossier, Webster and Claiborne parishes. The goal is to spur economic development in the rural communities of North Louisiana.

Local sponsors of this project include the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau, Caddo Parish  Commission, Bossier Parish Police Jury, Keep Bossier Beautiful, Shreveport Green and Plain Dealing Proud.
