You're mid way through spring break in SB Land. Run out of ideas? There's the Skate Plaza on the banks of the Red River.
You'll find three sets of stair elements, concrete blocks and benches, low concrete walls, high and low rails and ramps. This Shreveport park is just a year old and when it was built it was the first time a city architect designed a skate park with the help of skateboarders.
It's open 24 hours a day with space for skateboarding, inline skating and BMX bike riding.
"I found bliss early. It was reading or thinking in the spread out trunk of a pink flowered mimosa tree in our front yard.
I made my freest art back then. When I was a little kid alone in my room, I danced to music from a tiny record player. I had a built up platform in the bottom of my closet, so I would push the clothes back on either side and dance away in funky costumes I found around the house. Now when I create art, I am seeking to go back to my bliss." Usher May 24, 2010
