FAYETTEVILLE, AR— The City of Fayetteville’s Parks, Natural Resources and Cultural Affairs Department is developing a new 10-year parks system master plan, Imagine Tomorrow’s Parks.

The City welcomes the residents to engage and participate in development of this new master plan, on the following locations:

  • Saturday, Feb. 19, 10-11:30 a.m. at Veterans Memorial Park Pavilion (4451 N. Vantage Drive)
