Flooding Affects Burns Park
Posted on 05/11/2015
Closure Map

The Burns Park Athletic Fields (baseball, softball, and soccer) have been saturated with recent rain and will be closed until further notice.

The Arkansas River Trail on the North Little Rock side is basically closed due to the high water from the Arkansas River, and will be for several days (spread the word.) Right now the river is at 15 feet and beginning to encroach on the trails. By Tuesday night the river will be at 21 feet and most of the trails will be completely under water, like the fishing pier shown here. Specifically the trail is closed from the entrance to the Big Rock Quarry to the Big Dam Bridge. Expect this closure to last a few days, at least. Check our website for updated info and maps of the closures.


  • The soccer fields are closed until further notice.
  • The Baseball and Softball Complexes are closed unti further notice
  • Tournament Drive is closed (access to soccer fields, dog park, boat ramps, and Victory Lake) just past the Golf Course parking lot.
