[ARCHIVED] COVID-19 Bentonville Parks and Recreation Response and Action Plan

In an effort to keep our citizens and participants safe, Bentonville Parks and Recreation will be taking the following measures regarding COVID-19.

Please note Park playgrounds, restrooms, tennis courts, basketball courts, volleyball courts, baseball and softball fields, skate park, and dog parks are closed. Parks and trails are open but, you are encouraged to use social distancing guidelines.

These decisions are the result of careful consideration of public gatherings and precautionary measures shared by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Arkansas State Governor Asa Hutchinson, the World Health Organization (WHO), and our first and foremost focus of participant safety and exposure to the virus at large public gatherings occurring at our programs, events, and facilities.

All public events taking place on public park property will be canceled from now until at least April 30th including but not limited to: First Friday, Farmers Markets, Easter at Orchards Park, and Art Stroll.

The Run Bentonville Half Marathon will be modified to a virtual race.

The Spring Square 2 Square Bike Ride has been cancelled. 

The Memorial Park Glow Run has been cancelled. 

All facilities are closed including the Bentonville Community Center and the Downtown Activity Center. All memberships will be suspended until the facilities are reopened.

All programming at these facilities has been suspended.

All youth sports programming has been suspended.

All other classes, programs, and activities have been suspended.


We will monitor the situation closely and continue to communicate with further information as it becomes available.
