Long Description:
This spring in Big Spring Park, Cotter, Arkansas has an abundance of cool clear water coming from it year around. There is no life-guard, no concessions, no entrance fee - just swimming. The following is copied from
For several generations, a large tree grew beside
the spring. The rope which hung from one of its big
branches was the swing which hurled the children out
over the spring so they could take the cold plunge. In
1970, the tree was blown down in a storm. Some years
later, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers with the help of
Entergy embedded a large steel beam in the bank to take
its place. The tradition of the swing at the spring continues.
