Prairie Grove has excellent parks, with the aquatic park drawing
over 23,000 guests last year alone. Delford
Rieff Park has excellent baseball facilities
and over 35 teams participate in summer ball programs. The park
also includes a walking track, sand volleyball, Murph
Pair Skate Park, and the Prairie Grove Aquatic
Park, a small but quaint oasis in downtown
Prairie Grove, is home to the beautiful Anna Holmes Dorman Public
Library. This brick and native stone building houses books of
all interests, public computers, videos, and many other programs
and services. The library’s counterpart, the Prairie
Grove Children’s Library, is located just
across Mock Park and is the only
stand alone children’s library in the state.
The library focuses on the child, and provides reading opportunities
in a much more relaxed environment than is normally found in
a library setting. Games, computers, and a wide array of children’s
programs and activities make this the place to be for kids.
Mock Park also includes a state of the art playground, complete
with a space net, basketball courts, gazebo, picnic tables,
and of course summer color.
The state's only Civil War Battlefield
State Park is located in
Prairie Grove and offers miles of hiking trails, a historic
driving tour, historic period buildings, a museum, and many
special programs throughout the year. On Labor Day, the park
hosts tens of thousands of visitors the annual Clothesline
Fair, one of the top arts and crafts venues
in the South.
Other nearby attractions include Devil’s
Den State Park, Bob
Kidd Lake (map),
Wedington. Opportunities for camping, swimming,
fishing, and just enjoying nature abound. Numerous clubs are
available that encourage camaraderie, projects, and local civic
pride. The Masonic Temple, Lion’s Club, Women’s
Federated Club, Jr. Civic League, Prairie
Grove Chamber of Commerce, and Friends of the Library
all welcome new members.
