Lake Willastein
From its wonderful fishing to the scenic
bicycle and walking paths, Lake
Willastein is the perfect place for the
family to play, exercise, and relax! There
are picnic tables, BBQ pits, playgrounds,
fishing docks, wooden bridges, and plenty
of beautiful open space perfect for setting
up the volleyball net, tossing a Frisbee or
just to lay back and enjoy!
A wonderful treasure in our city!
The bunkers at Lake Willastein were built in 1942 and used during
World War II
to manufacture and store munitions for the military.
Maumelle Ordnance Works Bunker No. 4, built in 1942, is listed on the
National Register of Historic Places.
"In my opinion, Lake Willastein is one of the best places to be
outdoors in Maumelle. They have multiple trails; a beautiful
lake with plenty of ducks and geese roaming freely; a nice
sized playground and pavilion; and even a peaceful military
memorial. My family and I also fly kites here, as there is plenty
of space to do so"

The great Mya Angelou said it best, "you can't use up creativity. The
more you use, the more you have." The playgrounds at Lake Willastein
offer a great and safe place to allow kids to stretch those imaginations!
