Mills Park Natural Area
Mills Park, Saline County,  is a unique example of an urban natural area. This small tract harbors an acidic wooded seep and represents the once extensive forests that occurred across the Coastal Plain. The natural area consists of a wooded block within the larger context of an 80-acre city park owned by the City of Bryant. The natural area contains several plant species considered rare or uncommon in Arkansas. These special plants, along with many other species of ferns, shrubs, and sedges grow in a series of wooded seeps that flow into an unnamed tributary of Crooked Creek. The natural area is bounded on three sides, east, south, and west by a paved recreational trail.

Hunting is prohibited on this natural area.

Travel southeast on State Highway 183 through Bryant to Mills Park Road. Travel east and then north on Mills Park Road. Turn left at the second Warren Bass Circle entrance to the city park. The natural area lies within the city park in the northwest corner.
