Springdale City Officials Working On Park For Greenway Trailhead

Posted: December 10, 2013 at 5 a.m.

City officials are exploring the use of detention ponds to keep water flowing through a planned downtown park.


The Razorback Greenway

The greenway is a 36-mile trail from Fayetteville to Bentonville that will run parallel to Spring Creek through downtown Springdale. Spring Creek would be used as a water feature for the development.

A $15 million Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery grant is helping pay for the greenway. Matching money is coming from $15 million pledged by the Walton Family Foundation for area trails.
