Top Facility Award from ARPA

ARPA Facility Awards

Springdale Parks and Recreation is proud to announce it was recently awarded with a pair of top facility awards by the Arkansas Recreation and Parks Association (ARPA).

The Arkansas Recreation and Parks Association Annual Conference and Tradeshow was held in Springdale from Oct. 23-25. During the event, Springdale Parks and Recreation was awarded as the 2019 ARPA Facility of the Year in both categories, for both large facilities and small facilities.

In the category for large facilities, the ARPA Facility of the Year was given to Springdale's C.L. 'Charlie' and Willie George Park.

In the category for smaller facilities, the ARPA Facility of the Year for 2019 was given to Dynamic Discs of Northwest Arkansas at J.B. Hunt Park. C.L. 'Charlie' and Willie George Park first opened in 2016 and continues to be one of the top multi-use facilities in the entire region. Dynamic Discs of Northwest Arkansas opened in 2018 and is still the only retail disc golf shop located on a disc golf course, 'The J. Beast', in the state of Arkansas.

With its two Arkansas Recreation and Parks Association Facility Awards, Springdale Parks and Recreation became the first organization since 1987 to be given two ARPA facility awards in the same year.
