Quality of life is important in North Little Rock, and our city’s numerous extras make living here a delight. The city is governed by an elected mayor and city council. North Little Rock owns its electric company and health department. The city also has its own newspaper, school system, fire and police departments and a library system with two locations. The Patrick Henry Hays Senior Citizens Center offers residents over 50 a place to socialize and exercise.
You can keep busy at the North Little Rock Community Center and the North Little Rock Boys and Girls Club, or you can enjoy a weekend afternoon just across the river at the Clinton Library, Heifer Village or River Market. The River Trail provides a safe place to walk or ride a bike — it is one view of the city you do not want to miss. Argenta is North Little Rock’s oldest and most eclectic neighborhood, full of carefully renovated historic homes as well as newly built apartments, condos and townhouses. All within walking distance of the busy Main Street, one can take in a baseball game, concert or stroll along the river.
Head north on Main Street and you’ll come to Park Hill, the city’s original suburb. Its homes, mostly built between 1920 and 1940, are all over the architectural map, from Craftsman bungalows to Mediterranean mansions. Seven man-made lakes form the centerpiece of Lakewood, a neighborhood of mostly 40 to 50 year-old homes that straddle McCain Boulevard. Newer, more spacious homes can be found in Calico Creek, Shady Valley, Heritage Park, Overbrook, Indian Hills and Windsor Valley. Some of the city’s most luxurious residences are located in Chimney Rock.
