The Bentonville City Square is located in the middle of downtown Bentonville, near the corner of Central and Main. It serves as a true city center, near trails, parks, retail, restaurants and museums. The Walton Five and Dime museum is located on the west side of the square. Two blocks north on Main Street is Compton Gardens, with access to the beautiful Crystal Bridges Trail, overlooking the Crystal Bridges Museum.
The confederate soldier statue is encircled by seasonal flowers and a fountain. Benches and tables are provided for visitor's convenience. The interior of the square was renovated in 2001 and the exterior renovated in 2008. The city square is home to the Saturday Farmer's Market, First Fridays, and many other civic events.
