posted Oct 13, 2011, 2:42 PM by Stacy Hamilton

Park History:

Prospect Terrace Park was created in 1937 when the Sidney Khan family donated 3.64 acres to develop a city park. 

Revitalization Plan:

Residents from Prospect Terrace, Heights and Hillcrest neighborhoods are working together to create a great city park in our neighborhood. With the support of City Director Stacy Hurst, the City allocated $130,000 for improvements to Prospect Terrace Park. Little Rock City Parks and Recreation department has created a master plan for the revitalization of Prospect Terrace Park. The plan includes paved sidewalks for improved access, a large grass field, picnic areas and grills located under an acre of mature oak trees, a new natural adventure playground, benches, drinking fountains, and beautiful landscaping.

During the next year, we are raising money for Phase Two of our project. What Phase Two looks like depends on YOU and includes the new playground equipment!!

Ways You Can Participate:

Our success relies on the support and investment of businesses, individuals, and private philanthropists who care about our parks.  There are various ways you can donate and all donations are tax deductable. Donations for the Prospect Terrace Park revitalization can be made online or you can mail a donation to the City Parks Conservancy. Write “Prospect Terrace Park” in the memo line. Additionally, pavers are currently being sold to help raise the money needed to fund the new playground area.  For more information on purchasing pavers please contact Nathan Koonce at nkoonce1@gmail.com

Why Invest in Parks:

With all their natural features, parks are green spaces that reduce stress and aid in overall well being for both children and adults.  Research shows that parks help build strong communities, create safe neighborhoods, provide positive places for children to play, learn and explore, make neighborhoods more beautiful, and increase property values.
