Downtown Little Rock to offer free guided tours

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- If you think you know everything there is to know about Downtown Little Rock, think again! Starting next month, visitors and residents alike will have the opportunity to see the capitol city from a new perspective both on foot and on the rails.

Whether on foot, two wheels or four, there are many ways to take in the sights of downtown Little Rock.

"We really love to hang our hat on being real personal and high touch as a destination," said Gretchen Hall of the Little Rock Convention and Visitors Bureau. But, there's more than what meets the eye. "Someone can walk through Riverfront Park and really take in its beauty, but they might not know all the underlying information and facts about the park."

Throughout the month of October, visitors and residents will have that opportunity thanks to a new downtown partnership offering free guided tours.

Community center to revitalize old LR park

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Little Rock city leaders finalized an agenda item on Tuesday that will allow them to buy four houses along the south end of John Barrow Road. Their goal is to turn the land into a football field and help bring long-time West Central city park back to life.

The football field will compliment a $6-million community center that has been under construction for about five months. It is set to become the centerpiece in a part of town that has been resourceful and smart with its money.

Ten years ago, the city bought West Central park for $1.

"This park was literally dead," said Ward 6 Alderman Doris Wright, who played a major part in the acquisition.

Dilapidated, and without power, White restored the park to where it is today.

"I took a gamble, and boy, did it pay off," she said laughing. "It is beyond exciting."

Little Rock airport travelers paying more than national average

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Recent numbers from the National Bureau of Transportation Statistics show that airfares in Little Rock have been above the national average and climbing for years. Clinton National Airport's Executive Director said he wishes he could do something about it, but it's out of his hands.

"We have no control over it. That's one of the things people wish that we had control over. Believe me. If I did, no ticket would be more than $99," said Executive Director Ron Mathieu. "It's something that's completely controlled by the airlines. The airport has no control over it, and the airlines really hire all sorts of mathematicians, actuaries, and so forth. They look at demand, and they look at how people buy and what they do, and that's what really manages the airfare prices."
