Springdale's Shaw Family Park is now open for business. The 121 acre park is located at the corner of West Downum Avenue and Ball Street in Northwest Springdale and features two playgrounds, an extreme fitness area, tennis courts, a dog park, and splash pad (biggest in the city!)
Once everything's said and done, the city will have spent around $10 million on construction of the park. In 2012, the city bought the 121 acre tract from Arvest Bank with funds from a bond issuance. The remaining balance comes from the 2018 bond issue, which included $21.3 million for parks. A future bond issue may be used to cover the costs of ball fields and a water recycling system in the splash pad. NWA Democrat-Gazette
