With a little of everything. Plenty of space to walk. Two play areas for kids. There is even a train car. And a nice memorial to the CCCs. As well as an area visitor center.

There is not a street # that I can find but it is exit 150 off of I-40. The park is off of Military Road on both sides. There is excellent signage to direct you to your site.

How GREAT did DENALI look and Ken Burns Park show!!!!! (8 Replies)
I thought the park looked great! Wouldn't it have been great to be Adolph Murie? I just wish they had shown a bit more of Gates of the Arctic and Wrangel St. Elias(isn't it the largest national park?). Those parks need more visitors so people can see what were preserving. Still all the parks were amazing.

Church near Burns Park? (6 Replies)
My family will be in Little Rock this weekend for a soccer tournament in Burns Park. We're looking for a Catholic Church that is close to the Park. Thanks! KC

Saint Patrick's Catholic Church located at 211 West 19th in North Little Rock is the closest to Burns Park. If you're staying in town overnight you might consider a church close to your lodging.

On the coastal highway most people stop in the Monterey area and the Morro Bay/Pismo Beach/San Luis Obispo area. Monterey to Santa Barbara is a bit too far if you want to stop and see places along the way. There is another radically different option that you might consider: Day 1: San Francisco to Yosemite National Park. Day 2: Yosemite. Day 3: Yosemite. Day 4: Yosemite to Santa Monica (that's about six hours plus stops, so you might want to make a start from Yosemite towards the end...More
