The County has a stated goal to develop, maintain and manage a County park, trail and open space system to meet the needs of the community by utilizing various methods of fiscally responsible strategies. The County hopes to achieve this goal by
- enhancing and maintain the existing park system to meet the intergenerational needs of the community;
- ensure that there is a balance within the County park system that creates connections between rural and urbanizing areas of the County;
- take advantages of opportunities to acquire new park and open space areas; promote the development of trails;
- promote the sharing of facilities of recreational facilities and consider various funding options in acquisition of parkland.
There are currently seven parks in the un-incorporated areas of Benton County consisting of approximately 354 acres with frontage on the Mississippi River and access onto Little Rock Lake.
The County has completed a master plan for the future development of the existing parks as well as acquisition of additional parkland to ensure the continued enjoyment of our natural environment for generations to come.
