Outside of the easter edge of town in the wilderness if the city of Florence's 200-acre mountain park that is bordered by the National Forest and a private Ranch. The park hosts picnic and restroom facilities as well as an outdoor amphitheater. There is a host resident on the Park grounds. The Park is along the Arkansas River and has launching sites for rafts, canoes, and kayaks for entrance onto the Arkansas. Newlin Creek Trail on National Forest lands is just down the road from the Park taking hikers up into a little canyon with waterfalls and a creek as well as a historic lumber site with an old steam boiler, flywheel, and chimney from a sawmill. The Park is often used by re-enactments, community groups, and sometimes music festivals. Stunning panoramas of the mountains and some very beautiful grounds. Rating: 5 stars of out 5.Related to:
