LEMONADE FROM LEMONS: A TRAILS PERSPECTIVE AT CEDAR GLADES PARK IN HOT SPRINGS
A landfill becomes a revenue-generating facility for a wide range of outdoor recreation.
Trail providers should know that when offered a basket of lemons, excellent lemonade can be the result. Cedar Glades Park, managed by the Garland County Department of Environmental Services is such a case. This 432-acre Class IV landfill, holding solid construction debris, is required to be maintained by the county in perpetuity.
Forward thinking county employees worked tirelessly to develop park and recreation facilities, including trails, at the site. Today, this revenue generating facility is a popular destination for a wide range of outdoor enthusiasts. Participants will hear the war stories and success stories behind the process that led to the development of this unique park. Learn more at www.cedargladespark.com.
After lunch at Cedar Glades, participants will travel to Hot Springs National Park's Bathhouse Row Promenade. This formal trail is an integral part of the interpretation of the hot springs and their role in the history of the City of Hot Springs and the National Park. On April 20, 1832, President Andrew Jackson signed legislation to set aside "...four sections of land including said (hot) springs, reserved for the future disposal of the United States (which) shall not be entered, located, or appropriated, for any other purpose whatsoever." This made Hot Springs National Park the oldest national park, predating Yellowstone National Park by forty years. National Park Service employees will discuss the Promenade and its importance to their mission to interpret and preserve this valuable resource. Learn more at www.nps.gov/hosp/.
