Arthur Ray Teague Parkway Trail Description

This 8-foot wide hiking and biking pathway sits on the bank of the Red River in south Bossier, Louisiana. The Red River is a tributary of the Mississippi River, and gets its distinct hue from the red soil it has swept away. The trail serves to connect Bossier residents to the waterway by providing a low-stress way to travel along it while getting unobstructed views of the water.  

The trail, named for the parkway it parallels, begins on Diamond Jacks Boulevard, and heads south on between the river and the road. It passes destinations like Century Link Center multipurpose arena and Walker Place Park, making it valuable for both recreation and commuting. The trail concludes at the Red River National Wildlife Refuge boat launch.

Parking and Trail Access

There are three major stopping points for this trail:

  • The first is 1.3 miles from Diamond Jack Blvd. and it features a parking, picnic tables and a shelter.
  • A second stopping point is at the Teague Parkway Recreation Area, located under the Shreveport Barksdale Highway.
  • Across the parkway from Century Link Center (2000 Century Link Center Drive, Bossier City) is the main trailhead where you can park and picnic.

Arthur Ray Teague Parkway Trail Reviews

This trail is wide and well designed, with benches available on the east end of the trail, and pavilions along the way as well. There is a beautiful statue in one of the parks, and the views of the river and the city are splendid.

The biggest issue is that in the summer sun, there is little shade. The few places that have shade don't have benches, and the seats that are provided sit in the baking sun.

It would be an excellent project for scouts or community groups to erect some shade structures over the existing benches, and to plant some trees that would provide more shade along the trail.

The western end of the trail has no benches or shady spots.

Overall, this trail is an asset to the community and would be most enjoyable when the temperatures are cool.
