Sustainability is when social equity,

environmental health, and economic growth

are available for current generations

and protected for future generations.

 

Improving Recreation Access to the Fourche Creek: On May 9, 2017 a brand new boat ramp was unveiled at Benny Craig park! The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission also announced that the stretch of Fourche Creek between Benny Craig and Interstate Park has been designated as the first Urban Water Trail in Arkansas. A Marine Fuel Tax grant from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission funded the boat ramp and it will be maintained by the Little Rock Parks Department. There is new signage identifying the boat ramp. Get out and enjoy the beauty of one of the largest urban wetlands in the country!
