Bossier City Expands Playability for Community Members with
Lighting Upgrades at Five City Parks

The Challenge

City leaders in Bossier City, Louisiana, planned a project to give community members more recreational opportunities at night by upgrading facility lighting at five of its city parks. Clifford Almond Park, Meadowview Park, Shady Grove Baseball, Tinsley Park, and Walbrook Park all had aging HID lights that were failing to meet expectations in terms of light quality and control. With a few locations in need of new support structures as well, the city wanted a partner to provide new and retrofitted light systems that would reduce glare and light spill, improve visibility, and be easy to operate.

The Solution

“We have worked collaboratively with Musco to provide the citizens and visitors of Bossier City the highest quality athletic field lighting in our region. Without a doubt, the upgraded Musco light fixtures and poles we added, plus the remote lighting controls we use on a daily basis, have certainly made scheduling easy (instant “on” or instant “off” via a smart phone or by scheduling well in advance with the use of a PC). We are also able to see a significant energy savings moving from Metal Halide to LED. Musco technicians are always available to answer any questions we’ve had. From an access standpoint, we are also able to control “who” has access to scheduling the field lights that are used by outside organizations such as Dixie, Little League Baseball, and weekend tournament travel baseball/softball. It has certainly been a pleasure working with Musco! They have and continue to exceed the needs of our recreational department!”
