Knoop Park | Hillcrest | Parks | Recreation
There are two ways to get great views of downtown Little Rock from area parks and this one is the easy way (Emerald Park in North Little Rock is the rugged way). From the apogee of a paved semicircle around and below the Water Works you can see the Arkansas River and the Little Rock skyline; it's a popular spot for watching Riverfest and the Fourth of July fireworks shot from the Main Street bridge every year. You'll also see runners, people pushing strollers, bluebirds and birdwatchers, teen-agers hanging out and, if you're lucky, a fox or two.

    Central Arkansas is the urban heart of Arkansas, but that doesn't mean it's all concrete and office buildings.
