LITTLE ROCK – A series of interpretive signs along the Arkansas River Trail and the Little Maumelle River Water Trail will be dedicated at 2 p.m., Nov. 21, at the Learning Circle at Two Rivers Park.
Pulaski County Judge “Buddy” Villines and Arkansas Game and Fish Commission Director Mike Knoedl will speak during the dedication.
Thousands of runners, walkers, cyclists and wildlife watchers from Arkansas and around the world use the Arkansas River Trail. These 13 signs – including a trail head map at Two Rivers Park – will help them understand how habitat and wildlife interact, and the importance of conservation, especially in an urban setting.
The Little Maumelle River Water Trail – part of the Arkansas Water Trails program – winds more than 8 miles from Pinnacle Mountain State Park to the Arkansas River. Three access points have been enhanced by signs – one at Two Rivers Park, one near the foot of Two Rivers Bridge in Little Rock and one at Pinnacle Mountain State Park.
Directions to the Learning Circle: From Arkansas Highway 10 (Cantrell Road) in west Little Rock, turn north on Pinnacle Valley Road. After crossing the Little Maumelle River, continue straight on County Farm Road to Two Rivers Park Road and turn right. Continue through the park to the Learning Circle mound, the site of the dedication. Parking is available around the mound.
Partners in this project include the AGFC, Pulaski County, City of Little Rock, Pinnacle Mountain State Park and the Arkansas Canoe Club.
