The picture on the left depicts the bronze statues honoring the sacrifices of the Korean War Veterans. The Korean War Veterans Memorial is located on the grounds of MacArthur Park in Little Rock. It is located on 9th Street just west of I30. The old military arsenal in MacArthur Park was built in 1840. It was also used during the Civil War and is now the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History.

Brigadier General Douglas MacArthur, who became the Supreme Allied Commander of the Pacific Area during World War II, was born here in 1880. The park has numerous historical plaques honoring General MacArthur and others who have contributed to fighting the wars that have kept our nation free.

Also located on the grounds of the 36 acre city park are the Arkansas Arts Center and Children’s Theatre. The Arts Center Museum houses paintings and works of art contributed by former Arkansas Governor, Winthrop Rockefeller. Admission is Free to the Arts Center and the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History.
