Lincoln Parish Park is 23 years old and growing

Haley, my oldest granddaughter, is expecting her first child in November, making me a first-time great-grandfather. About the time Haley was being born some 23 years ago, work was going on at a site north of Ruston to give life to Fred Hoogland's dream. Lincoln Parish Park, like Haley, was also seeing life for the first time.
