After pandemic delays, plans from 2020 to update Gulley Park with an activity hub, including an expanded playground, splash pad, and pavilion, are finally moving forward.

  • Fun times: The playground expansion will center around a "mega tower" with a winding enclosed slide and will sit just south of a splash pad with an enlarged pavilion between where parents can watch kids in either direction.
  • Gulley's glow-up: Further phases of the park's development include a dog park, tennis and pickleball courts, a sand volleyball pit, and a renovated stage area for concerts.

U of A Capital Scan Reveals Funding Trends In Arkansas

NWA Daily

The University of Arkansas's 2021 Arkansas Capital Scan analyzes data about how Arkansas-based companies gather funding to identify gaps and opportunities to better support the diverse founders who decide to grow their businesses in Arkansas.
