Creekside Park

Close your eyes and picture your perfect park… got it? Odds are, Creekside has whatever’s running through your head. Regulation size volleyball, tennis, and basketball courts are ready to host a pick up game with friends whenever you’d like, and a stretch of open and wooded land is dedicated solely to an 18 hole disc-golf course. Housing two fully outfitted playgrounds for the kids, an extensive paved trail system for walking or biking, and plenty of open fields for picnics or a game of catch as well, Creekside Park is equipped to accommodate a variety of different activities with family, friends, and pets. Creekside has even recently installed a functioning “ninja course” for fans of the hit television series, American Ninja Warrior, in an effort to stand out from other parks in the Fayetteville area. Needless to say, there’s something here for everyone.

Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park

With walking and driving tours, regular programs, and weekend events, Prairie Grove is dedicated to connecting the town to its heritage through recreation and education, as well as maintaining its roots for generations to come. Participate in pioneer games, observe artifacts from the 1800’s, experience infantry routines and more through one of the many programs put on by this park system throughout the year. To top it all off, Prairie Grove provides its guests with a full battle reenactment biennially on even numbered years… this isn’t an occasion you want to miss. Cannon fire and accurate battle progression serve to show spectators what this conflict looked like at the time of occurrence.
