Cultural Attractions in North Little Rock, AR
Little Rockers often come out to North Little Rock to take in a game at the Dickey-Stephens Park. The park is home to the Arkansas Travelers. The stadium holds around 5,288 people, and was actually funded in part by a small temporary tax increase of 1%, which was passed by majority vote in 2005. Obviously, the bill had its share of opponents, but the majority of North Little Rockers felt that the tax increase would pay dividends in the future. The Verizon Arena is another great attraction, drawing musicians and performing artists from around the world.
