A rarely used little park with a view. Located on Hwy 365 north of Maumelle.
Palarm Creek Park looks out over Palarm Creek where it spills into the Arkansas River. There is a railroad bridge under which the path to the park goes (wild if you happen to be there when a train goes over) and large concrete structures on either side of the creek where it meets the river (I have no idea what function these serve).
Even though picnic tables are available, the locals use this park mostly for fishing.
When I was placing the cache, the sun was just beginning to set on the far side of the river. If you can, be sure to schedule your hunt around that time to see the beautiful view.
The cache is located on the far end of the park down a small trail. The only real challenge to finding this cache is the tree cover making an accurate GPSr reading difficult to come by.
The container is a bucket covered in camo duct tape and contains larger than usual trading items to get it started. Beginning inventory includes three pairs of work gloves, a large bottle of bubble solution (for the kids), some Muscle & Fitness and Backpacker magazines, a couple of paperback books, a soap dish, and other items.
The best place to park is also the location of a virtual cache: I'll Try Sir (GC8032). Be sure to pick that up on the way!
Congratulations to Rhone for being FTF!
