Betty Virginia Park was given to the city by Albert Colwell (A.C.) Steere and his partner Elias Goldstein in honor of their daughters Betty Goldstein (later Franklin) and Virginia Steere (later Marston). Virginia Steere was named after her mother Virginia Collins Steere. A.C. Steere’s own home was built at 910 Ockley, in the South Highlands Annex area, overlooking Betty Virginia Park.

The beauty and central location of Betty Virginia Park makes it one of the top visited parks in Shreveport.
