A guest at Crenshaw Springs Water Park splashes into the pool after zooming down one of the giant flume water slides.

Feel the thrill of speeding through one of the several flume tubes or kick back and relax on the Lazy River in your tube. Big and tall or short and small, there truly is something for everyone at Crenshaw Springs. Bring the kids out for a day of family fun at 9801 Dollarway Road in White Hall. The park is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day.


“Crenshaw” was given to the natural spring-fed creek in what is now White Hall, as it was believed the land through which the creek flowed had once been owned by a family named Crenshaw. In the 1800’s, people traveling by horse and wagon from Little Rock to Pine Bluff would stop at Crenshaw springs to enjoy the clear water. Whether swimming, washing clothes, or watering their horses, travelers often returned to the area because they knew “good water” flowed there.

Attracted to the clean water, travelers began settling around the creek. Eventually, the settlers built a small, one-room structure for church services and group meetings at the top of the hill next to the spring. As the building’s clapboards had been painted with whitewash, everyone in the area referred to it as the “white hall” and it became the most prominent landmark. In 1964, the community officially became a city, and the town was named the City of White Hall in honor of its history.

 

As the water park was being planned, officials wanted to honor the heritage of the White Hall community and settled on Crenshaw Springs Water Park, hoping that the “good water” would continue to bring new travelers to the area for recreational enjoyment. The water park is located at 9801 Dollarway Road in White Hall. For more information, visit the official website.
