The Shreveport Bossier area Lions Clubs are partnering with the American Rose Society to improve the access for persons with disabilities to the gardens at the American Rose Center in Shreveport, Louisiana.
In doing so, we are creating a nature path to descend from the rear of the Klima
Rose Hall to the reflecting pool in the garden. There will be plantings of
native Louisiana plants in this area. The path will include a Lions History Wall
depicting the progress of Lions over the past 100 years, a seating area, and
information technology systems to help explain the surroundings to those who are
blind or wish to learn more about it.
A Lions Memorial Pavilion will also be constructed on site which will be paved with memorial bricks. There will be street level access to this area created with access through a Lions Gate and path.
This project is made possible by a generous matching grant from Lions Clubs International Foundation, celebrating 50 years of service to the world. Lions Clubs International Foundation has helped hundreds of millions of people around the world, donating over 1 Billion Dollars to projects that include Vision Restoration, Disaster Relief, Encouraging Youth, Feeding the Hungry, and Environmental Projects, just to name a few.
