Let the Greenway be Your Freeway
It’s no secret that Northwest Arkansas is alive with the natural beauty of an Ozark landscape, and there’s no better way to experience that beauty than with a trip on the Razorback Regional Greenway. From family parks to unique trailside art, the 36-mile Razorback Regional Greenway showcases the gifts of Mother Nature alongside thriving downtowns and urban surprises.
The Razorback Regional Greenway is the latest in a series of major tourism destinations established in Northwest Arkansas over the past decade. Amenities such as Pinnacle Hills Promenade in Rogers, Arvest Ballpark in Springdale, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville and Mount Kessler in Fayetteville offer a variety of experiences for visitors. Moreover, a children’s museum called Amazeum is expected to open in July 2015 in Bentonville.
By May 2015, Razorback Regional Greenway visitors will be able to bike, walk or run from south Fayetteville to Bella Vista Lake Park on the paved pathway. The trail takes travelers by some of the region’s top destinations – Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the University of Arkansas, the Dickson Street entertainment district, Pinnacle Hills Promenade, and the Walmart AMP.
The completion will mark the culmination of a decade of planning and partnerships between local cities, foundations, and regional, state and federal agencies.
