“A paved path along the top of Arkansas CIty's flood dike for the Arkansas River.
— Andy Cramb
Perfect place to take the kids away from traffic
This flood dike path is a perfect place to take your kids and ride away from traffic. Starting at the south end, there is a short climb to the top of the dike and then you're on your way to the park in downtown Arkansas City.
The path goes by Veterans Memorial Lake which has a paved path around it. At the North end of the trail is Paris Park which boasts a skate and bike park and a public swimming pool, among several other park activities. A bald eagle nests in the woods to the west of the south end of the trail, so keep your eyes open for her!
