Now this is good news.
The Coleman Dairy family is giving UALR 10 acres on the south side of Col. Glenn. Ave, site of the former dairy. UALR will build a recreation complex — soccer, intramurals and a track-and-field facility. Until now, runners, jumpers and throwers at UALR have had to use the Little Rock School District track or whatever else they could find.
As a sometimes participant in old-timers track and field (well, field), I'm hoping the UALR track will be open to all comers.
