An old-fashioned, charming city in Pulaski County, Jacksonville is situated 14 miles northeast of Little Rock, Arkansas. Even though it is one of the larger cities in the Little Rock metro area, Jacksonville is family-oriented with plenty of green space and nearly a dozen parks.
Dupree Park is the largest at 168 acres. It contains a 1.3-mile paved trail, ball fields, a 10-acre lake with fishing peer, a dog park, horseshoe pit, and an 18-hole disc golf course. Pleasure Park has a playground, pavilion, and a pool complex. The Jacksonville Community Center is a 56,000 square foot facility with an indoor pool, racquetball courts, a walking track, and more.
Downtown Little Rock is a short drive away, putting its museums, night life, and shopping within easy reach. The River Market has an indoor bazaar, live entertainment, and a 10,000 seat amphitheater along the picturesque Arkansas River.
Jacksonville’s rural charm, just minutes from downtown Little Rock, make it a popular apartment renting location.
