Eddie D. Jones Park


The park is managed as an adventure park, with more than 10 miles of rugged mountain biking trails, more than five miles of horseback riding trails, and a 1 ½-mile hiking trail. A park ranger is on duty during open hours to help orient visitors and provide assistance. Restrooms and a small visitor center are maintained by the parks department.
Visitors are advised to come prepared for a wilderness-type experience. Proper clothing, insect repellant and plenty of fluids to drink are recommended. In addition to the trails maintained by the Parish of Caddo Parks and Recreation Department, the park is the site of Chimp Haven, a 200-acre chimpanzee sanctuary that is operated by the non-profit group Chimp Haven, Inc., and an 82-acre Veterans Cemetery that is operated by the Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs.
Eddie D. Jones is now home to a new cornhole court featuring a commercial shade structure to guard players from heat and inclement weather. Players will need to provide their own bean bags, and adhere to rules of common courtesy and fair play.
