The City of Springdale has made a tremendous effort over the last 5 years to upgrade and develop new parks to provide public spaces for entertainment and enjoyment for people of all ages and interests around town. The latest addition to the park roster may be the best installment yet. On Saturday, Shaw Family Park opened to the public and it is a sight to behold.

The $10 million park is comprised of 121 acres of land in the growing Northwest part of Springdale. It features an expansive great lawn that has burms and rolling hill areas that is also set up for entertainment with technology available on site. The park has two separate playground areas and a trail that winds its way through the property for 3 miles. There is an extreme fitness area as well as a splash pad for the kids and a dog park for your canine friends. There are also on site ponds for those who enjoy fishing.

The park was not designed to feature sports. You will notice there are no baseball or softball fields on site. It does include tennis courts, a much needed asset in the city of Springdale. On the Northwest corner of the park you will see the newly constructed Fire Station #9. This station provides drastically reduced response times and excellent coverage for Springdale residents located in this part of the city. The park was built with a combination of bond money and donations from the Willis Shaw family. The grand opening of the park will take place on May 1st of this year.
