Walk This Way
Photograph - Photography--greeting Cards Or Notes Are Cheaper By The Dozen!
"Walk This Way" was taken by my husband, David in Louisiana at Cross Lake. It was photographed in a park there called Ford Park. It shows a lovely, peaceful view of the green trees with a little bit of fall colors still in them and the fall leaves strewn on the wooden walk bridge pathway. The pathway curves around just asking the viewer to take this path, walk this way and see what is just around the corner.
Ford Park is a recreational facility on Cross Lake, which is named for the former mayor and finance commissioner John McWilliams Ford (1880–1965). Mr. Ford was mayor of Shreveport from 1918-1922 and its finance commissioner from 1930 until his death in 1965.
Cross Lake (French: Lac de la Croix) is an 8,575-acre lake located near Shreveport, Louisiana. The waterway provides the water supply for the City of Shreveport. Moss covered cypress trees line the banks of this open lake popular for fishing and recreational boating. Supporting waterfowl, alligators and an abundance of wildlife, there are many access sites, several commercial facilities, and two public parks.
Cross Lake was acquired by the City of Shreveport during the administration of Mayor John H. Eastman. Cross Lake Reservoir was constructed thereafter under the administration of Mayor Lee Emmett Thomas. Under Mayor Sam Caldwell, Cross Lake was stocked with fish.
Ford Park is a popular facility operated by the City of Shreveport, the seat of Caddo Parish in northwestern Louisiana. The 85-acre park is located in north Shreveport at 5784 South Lakeshore Drive near the municipal pier and boat launch.
