Bentonville has certainly been getting publicity, and rightfully so. This fast-growing community in northwest Arkansas has a rich arts scene, vibrant downtown and historic neighborhoods, plus an abundance of restaurants, parks and trails. And if you are a garden lover or just need to get out of a hotel for a bit, you have many free gardens to discover in Bentonville, Arkansas. In this case, a picture is worth a thousand words, so I will tempt you with images of the gardens that await you.
Let’s start with Bentonville’s downtown square (actually, I would start with a coffee, which is easy to find in Bentonville). The square itself is a garden, and two public gardens rich in native plants are a short, delightful walk north.
