Burns Park | MacArthur
Burns Park is to parks as New York is culture: It offers every outdoor activity imaginable, and a river runs by it. There's not a soccer player in Arkansas who hasn't booted the ball across the turf on one of its 17 fine fields. The golf course isn't like Warren Stephens' Alotian's, but you can't get in Alotian and you can here, and play 36 holes if you want. There's a tennis center and a seven-field baseball complex and a fishing pier and equestrian trails and RV camping and archery and two dog parks and if you want to get there on a bike instead of the interstate you can, since a portion of the River Trail runs alongside it. It's vast and North Little Rock is proud, proud, proud of this park, as well it should be.
