Gillam Park

If you're looking for an end-of-days setting for your next movie shoot, try Gillam Park. Still officially listed among the Little Rock Parks Department's offerings, but currently leased by Arkansas Audubon, this southeast Little Rock park is all but closed for most park activity. A gate blocks vehicular entrance to a paved drive that leads to an abandoned swimming pool, basketball court and extended green space. But hikers and bikers are still welcome. Park outside the gate and follow a paved walking trail past the pool into a wooded area. If you stay straight, after about a half a mile, you'll find an oxbow lake created by Fourche Creek that's prime birding territory. The trail is paved or covered by gravel to the lake. Beyond the lake and on a spur trail that goes upland, it's a little more wild. Look out for snakes and ticks. And bring a buddy. It can get lonely.
