The City of Slidell is pleased to announce that there is now public WiFi in several public parks in the City of Slidell, Louisiana.
The City of Slidell hosted a Ribbon Cutting for the WiFi in Public Parks last week at Possum Hollow Park. Mayor Cromer, members of the Slidell City Council, and elected and city officials were in attendance.
The project included the installation of equipment that provides wireless internet at the following four parks: Veterans Memorial Park (including the tennis courts and baseball field), Ducksworth, Possum Hollow, and Griffith parks.
The City of Slidell funded this project through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program which provides annual grants to develop viable urban communities. The total cost of the project was approximately $112,000, and the work was completed by In-Telecom.
Public WiFi will eventually be added to all the city parks, including Heritage, John Slidell, and the neighborhood parks.
