Northwest Arkansas residents will soon have access to another 358+ acres of outdoor recreational options. Check out some of the newest additions and future plans!
Nature Center & Shaw Family Park
Earlier this year, construction began on the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission’s Ozark Highlands Nature Center in Springdale. Located on 61-acres, the center will include an outdoor archery range, indoor and outdoor classrooms, native plant gardens, walking and biking trails, as well as Ozark wildlife exhibits.
More recently, Springdale broke ground on what will eventually become the second-largest park in the city. The 121-acre park will introduce access to a vibrant trail system, an old growth forest, a meadow, over 1,200 new trees, a splash pad, and other natural amenities.
