BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

Bossier Parish officials and camp coordinators rededicated a special place Monday afternoon on Lake Bistineau.

This park is located off Public Camp Road in Bossier Parish. The Fritze family, a local family who donated the land 77 years ago, recently helped spruce up the place.

A flag pole has been put in, along with a new pavilion. The boat launching ramp is even new and improved. Parish leaders passed a resolution at the last police jury meeting, thanking the Fritze family for their help.

"The Fritzes donated the money to put up the new flag pole and pavilion," said Police Jury Member Bob Brotherton, of District 1. "We are excited we can depend on them. They are a big contributor to the Bossier Parish Police Jury. We are happy to have them as friends."

Brotherton said right now is a good time to visit the park because the salvinia has yet to take over the lake.

Admission to the park is free.
