This blog is for ideas on how to use our bayous, now serving as drainage ditches, to make a network of pedestrian-bike paths, “greenways,” or “linear parks,” in Shreveport. One idea is just to cap them with cement and drains to make walkways often wider than streets. Then, groups could walk and bike together. People often feel safer in groups, especially women, young people, and the elderly. It’s also fun to walk together, socializing as we go. But there are many options. Tell us what YOU think!
