Innovative Library and Parks Department Partnership Demonstrates Safer Connections for People and Parks via Highway Bridge

War Memorial Park is a beautiful park in Little Rock, Arkansas, located near multiple public amenities like the Children’s Library and Learning Center, Little Rock Zoo, and a public splash pad. With support from a Safe Routes to Parks Activating Communities grant and technical assistance from the Safe Routes Partnership, the Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) and Little Rock Parks and Recreation partnered to overcome racial and physical division to reconnect the Children’s Library neighborhood, a primarily Black neighborhood, with War Memorial Park.
