Neighborhoods Near Barksdale
The Barksdale area is largely divided into two parishes:
- Caddo Parish (which houses Shreveport) and
- Bossier Parish (which houses Bossier City, Benton, and Haughton).
The dividing line is the Red River. Both sides of the river have their own respective vibes. For example, the “Shreveport side” tends to have more festivals, art, and celebrated history. For fun, Shreveporters like to go out to dinner, lunch, brunch, etc, and “be seen.”
On the other side of the river, Bossier residents appreciate more of a family-oriented, public school-centric lifestyle. Bossier residents enjoy family outings with their respective neighborhood developments, favorite restaurants, and the up-and-coming East Bank District on the Red River which features multiple breweries and the trendy restaurants.
The Bossier side of the river has become more and more populated in recent years, and both sides are very proud of their respective cultures and histories.
