Arkansas is the “Natural State,” and in Bentonville, that’s truly reflected as opportunities to appreciate nature are incorporated throughout our city. As soon as you step foot in town, you’ll notice how nature weaves together key experiences throughout our city like biking, art, and dining.
Since we love being outside so much, the amount of parks and gardens we have in Bentonville is no surprise, but it certainly is a delight. Read on for information about each of our beautiful public parks and gardens.
