A 700-foot-long elevated boardwalk with gazebo-like structures winds its way through the acreage allowing perfect viewing options. It also has pedestrian trails and two bridges offering beautiful vistas of the Arkansas River.  Admission is free.  Visit www.centralarkansasnaturecenter.com/ for additional information or phone 501-907-0636.
