  • HIGH WATER: Arkansas River has risen over the approach on the Big Dam Bridge, North Little Rock side.

The city of Little Rock said the high water of the Arkansas River has forced closure of the Two Rivers Park and portions of the River Trail near there.

Due to the recent amount of rain and the increased chances of flooding forecasted, the City of Little Rock Parks & Recreation has closed the portion of the River Trail from the Two Rivers Park Bridge westward through the wooded trail ending at the restrooms. Water is near 3 feet deep across the trail in parts of the park. The Arkansas River is expected to crest later in the day on Friday.

This also raises the chances for snakes mobilizing to higher ground.

Officials advise walkers and cyclists to heed the warnings and do not try to cross over any flooded areas.

The city also said Rebsamen Golf Course has been closed because of water. It will be re-evaluated Monday.

Note in the photo above signs posted on the approach on the North Little Rock side of the Big Dam Bridge. It's covered in water.
