Old Green Acres Neighborhood in Bossier
“One of the best things that happened to us as a military family was to be part of Barksdale Air Force Base. Which, with its more than 100 years of history, transmitted to my family and me its strength, confidence, and security that formed the roots of our lives”, said Amanda Riner, a Bossier citizen. She was born and raised in a military family and now has a sophomore at Airline High School. Her family currently lives in the Old Green Acres neighborhood. Like many military families, she settled in Bossier City neighborhoods close to schools and recreational options for young people and children, such as parks, gyms, sports fields, and shopping centers. These neighborhoods offer what you need for a great social life in a growing population. That makes it even more attractive to young and mature people.

“We chose Bossier City because it was the best option for raising and educating our children. Bossier Parish has one of the best school systems, and thanks to the funding, my sons were able to continue their studies at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is where my oldest son, Arturo Jr, graduated in Business Management. Alejandro graduated in Construction Engineering Technology with a major in Business Administration. Aldo, who is the youngest, is a Freshman and will study the same as his brother Alex,” says Guty Tijerina. Tijerina lives with her husband Arturo Villarreal in the Chaparral apartments near Shed Road. Now that they are experiencing an empty nest, they are happy to have chosen Bossier City to raise their three children. They want to continue living in the same place because they are close to hospitals, restaurants, and churches. They have everything they need to look forward to their golden years.

“Kingston Plantation was the neighborhood that best suited our needs. We were looking for a spacious house with large gardens where our four children, Camila, Noemi, Alex, and Melanie, could play and have their own space. We also wanted a neighborhood with families and young people so that they could have a social life,” says Eda Rodríguez de Orozco, Eda was one of the first homeowners in that neighborhood. She and her husband, Luis Orozco, have established their businesses in Bossier City. They have taken advantage of the tremendous growth and diversity that this city offers.
The Riners, the Villareals, and the Orozcos are three different families, but Bossier Parish perfectly fits each of their lifestyles. Their neighborhoods offer the accessibility to carry their day-to-day lives with the promise to continue being one of the best places to live in America.
