University District Development Corporation

The Oak Forest Community Garden was founded in 1995 to give residents of the area a place to grow their own food and enjoy the fruits of their labor. It continues this mission today with the help of the University District Development Corporation and the City of Little Rock Parks and Recreation. Situated on 25th and S Monroe near the UALR baseball fields, the Oak Forest Community Garden hopes to provide the entire University District community a place to grow, learn, and connect.
