History

Barton Park occupies 5 acres of level to gently-sloping land located directly north of Barton Coliseum and the State Fairgrounds in the south-central part of the city. In 1974, the State of Arkansas agreed to lease a portion of its State Fairgrounds parking area to the City of Little Rock for the development of this neighborhood park. A ballfield was constructed in 1974, and in 1978, lighting, dugouts, fencing, and bleachers were added.
