Two Rivers Park

Six years after it was announced, the Garden of Trees is finally going in at this 489-acre park jointly owned by Pulaski County and Little Rock. They're probably not native trees to this Arkansas River bottomland, but folks like to see them. Lots of people go to this park, a long peninsula of grasslands, marsh and sandy piney woods, to bike and walk its trails (maps at littlerock.org). Some go for the annual Mud Run, a costumed 5K with a sloppy ending. Millions of birders — only a slight exaggeration — sneak out here to see LaConte's Sparrow and other rarities (if you see a rail there, call us up). But here's the really neat thing: This park will soon be linked to Little Rock's River Trail by a bridge spanning the Little Maumelle. Bikers will be able to get to this park faster than folks in a Ferrari.
