Enjoy Broadmoor Lake

Have you visited Broadmoor Lake? We have a beautiful, 10-acre lake in in the heart of Broadmoor Neighborhood.

Broadmoor residents can walk or bike the lake path. 

The lake is also stocked with fish. (Of course, Arkansas Game and Fish Commission regulations apply, and you must have a fishing license.)

So, come out and enjoy Broadmoor Lake!

The pool is open!

Come join us at the Broadmoor Pool this summer. Membership is only $115 per Broadmoor family for the season.

See all your neighbors, have a snack at the concession stand, and have fun!

Broadmoor history mentioned in Democrat-Gazette

Elbert Fausett, founder of Broadmoor.

Those 4x6-foot concrete slabs in the back yard of every house in Broadmoor are relics from the very first air conditioned subdivision in Arkansas (and some folks say the United States). When our houses were built, they had natural gas air conditioners that used redwood towers to cool water. The towers sat on the slabs.

On page 3B of the Thursday, May 28, 2009, Democrat-Gazette, Broadmoor is mentioned as being the first air conditioned develoment in the state. Little Rock recently hired a consultant to study the potential for historic designations within the city. The consultant mentioned Broadmoor as having the potential to be designated a historic area.
