The Pavilion at Caddo Common is edging closer to completion.

A post by the Shreveport Downtown Development Authority notes that a visit to the park in the 800 block of Texas Avenue in mid-February to check on the status saw that the performance space now has a portion of its futuristic roof.

The plan is, weather permitting, that the space will be ready for plays, music, poetry and other performances by mid-summer.


The Mike McSwain-design Artist Performance Pavilion began to take shape in mid-January.

The pavilion joins the already in-place Artistrees, the colorful blue steel lighted art installations on the north side of the park. Soon to come are the permanent seating units that will go near the planned food truck court.

The Artistrees at Caddo Common Park were dedicated on Nov. 10. The trees, sculpted by Bruce Allen and conceived by Allen and the late artist Jim Hayes, are beautiful, artful additions to a needed downtown greenspace. The Artistrees are named “Diamonds for Jim” in honor of Hayes.
