As Toad Suck Daze was this weekend, I decided there couldn’t be a more perfect time to write about Toad Suck Park – located about 7 miles outside Conway on State Route 60, on the west side of the Arkansas River and under the bridge.
Toad Suck Park hosted the first Toad Suck Daze festival in 1982. Holly Prall shared a history of the festival and its colorful name in Friday’s article, Toad Suck Story: What Came Before? Her history didn’t mention the Toad Suck Tavern plaque that’s near a huge Catalpa tree between the basketball court and soccer field, but since it’s stamped 1984 – the last year the festival was hosted at the park – I have a feeling the two are somewhat related.
Like Cadron Settlement Park, there won’t be a lot of folks walking to Toad Suck Park as it’s so far removed from town and the folks cycling there are more likely to be experienced road riders. (Those who do ride there, though, will not find bike racks.)
