The Little Arkansas River ( /ɑːrˈkænzəs/ ar-KAN-zəs) is a river in the central Great Plains of North America. A tributary of the Arkansas River, its entire 123-mile (198 km) length lies within the American state of Kansas. [3]

Geography

The confluence of the Little Arkansas and Arkansas rivers in Wichita, Kansas.

The river originates in central Kansas in the Smoky Hills region of the Great Plains. [3] [4] Its source lies in extreme south-central Ellsworth County immediately north of Geneseo, Kansas. [4] [5] From there, the river flows generally south-southeast along the border between the Arkansas River Lowlands to the southwest and the McPherson Lowlands to the northeast. [4] It joins the Arkansas River immediately northwest of downtown Wichita, Kansas. [4] [6]

Points of interest

A statue, The Keeper of the Plains by local artist Blackbear Bosin, marks the confluence of these two rivers.
