Incredible Parks & Green Spaces Near the University of Arkansas

Fayetteville is a picturesque campus town with fabulous parks and green spaces easily explored from the University of Arkansas. Although there a few dozen fresh air spaces scattered across the city, some of the best parks are just around the corner. Check out these suggestions within walking distance of campus and our student apartments in Fayetteville, AR.

Wilson Park

Less than half a mile from home, the whispering trees, a goldfish pond, and the fairytale castle at Wilson Park easily lure residents to get outside and explore. Hop on over to play a round of tennis, or take a jog along beautiful tree-lined paths. Considered a local's favorite, it's a true pleasure to share the neighborhood with Wilson Park.

Gregory Park

Just a few blocks north of Wilson Park and a hair over a mile and a half away, Gregory Park is a stunner of a green space. The 19-acre park leaves explorers feeling as if they have successfully escaped the city without needing to leave town. The perfectly manicured trails offer extensive routes for hiking and biking in a serene, natural setting.

Mount Sequoyah Gardens

Head in the opposite direction going southeast to discover the Mount Sequoyah Gardens about a mile away. The small park offers a unique place to reflect and look out over the city. It's also the perfect location to view the Mount Sequoyah cross or to take a small walk on the paved pathway that navigates through the 3-acre park.
