Bike and Hike Boyle Park
Little Rock, Arkansas’s Boyle Park contains a total of eight known examples of Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) construction, all of which were built during the mid-1930s. These include five buildings -- two pavilions, a spring house, a caretaker's cabin, and the remains of the water tower/pump house/garage -- as well as three structures: a low water bridge and two culverts. All were built in the Rustic style popular for CCC construction throughout the state.
