Parks & Recreation

At Fayetteville Parks and Recreation, we are in the people business! It is our intent that individuals of all abilities, ages, interests and needs, feel welcome in our programs and our facilities.

Meeting Community Needs

Fayetteville Parks and Recreation has been recognized as the "Best in Arkansas," but we are not happy with just "being the best." We constantly add new programs and build new parks to keep up with the needs of our residents.

We want to be your number one stop for family fun and recreation. If there are any special accommodations you might need in order to participate please let us know.

Our Mission

To meet the parks and recreational needs of all by providing a safe and diversified park system that encourages community pride, visionary planning and operations, and environmental stewardship.


Parks and Recreation invites you to enjoy any (and all) of our numerous parks and trails. You may enjoy one of our free summer concerts or swim at the Wilson Park Pool. Our bet is that you'll enjoy it all.

Come join the fun!
