Update: Phase 1 of the Master Landscape Plan

March 10, 2017

During 2016, OCPS received grants from the Northwest Louisiana Master Gardeners and the City of Shreveport to implement Phase 1 of the master landscape plan. Using those funds, OCPS partnered with Shreveport Green and Loyola College Prep School to source and plant new trees and ornamental plants in the eastern part of the cemetery. A park bench was added to the Yellow Fever Mound section of Oakland. Additionally, an irrigation system was installed for each location.
