The City of Shreveport has opened “Cooling Centers” at its 15 community centers to provide area citizens a relief from the high heat.

Designated areas at all centers will be available for citizens to receive free bottled water. “Cooling Centers” opened today, from 8:00am – 8:00pm at the larger centers; and 8:00am – 6:00pm at the smaller centers.

Cooling Center hours of operation will continue until the heat advisory is lifted.

SPAR community centers offer a variety of activities for those cooling out at the centers. Activities include computer rooms, exercise rooms, Wii games, basketball/volleyball courts, pool, game rooms, cards, dominoes, big screen televisions, and staff dedicated to serving the community’s recreation needs. Don’t fight the oppressive summer heat, cool out with SPAR!
