NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Construction continues on a new marina along the Arkansas River in North Little Rock.
Once completed, the Rockwater Marina will have 136 slips to accommodate boats of all sizes. Amenities will include fuel, shower facilities, a ships store, and more.
Developer Jim Jackson said the marina sits close to a number of attractions in the downtown area.
"It's just a beautiful location. At night, we have the city downtown. Watching the moon rise up over downtown Little Rock is just breathtakingly beautiful," Jackson said.
Jackson added that some boat slips will be ready for the July 4 holiday next week, but construction on the marina is not expected to be complete for another three weeks.
