Earl G. Williamson Boat Launch to Remain Closed for Safety Concerns

The Earl G. Williamson Park boat launch (11425 LA Hwy. 1, Oil City) remains closed to the public, due to existing danger from high water levels.

The pier adjacent to the boat launch remains submerged.  Caddo Parish Parks and Recreation staff and emergency personnel will continue to evaluate conditions daily to determine when the boat launch will reopen.

The Parish reminds citizens not to attempt to go around any posted barricades, as it is against the law, and poses an extreme safety risk.
