Gregory Park Workday

Northwest Arkansas is easily one of the best places for outdoor recreation. We have world-class rock climbing, hundreds of miles of stellar hiking trails, acres of gorgeous national forest, and America’s first national river (the Buffalo River for those that don’t know). We also have some great mountain biking in the area! Soon, Fayetteville will have its very own 19-acre mountain bike trail right across the street from us here at Uncle Sam’s Safari Outfitters!

Gregory Park is a 19-acre wooded area that sits just Northwest of Evelyn Hills Shopping Center. Sycamore St. runs along the northern edge of the park, College Ave. runs to the east, Woolsey Ave. runs to the west, and the VA makes up the southern boundary. If you didn’t realize that there’s a park over there, you’re not alone. You may know the park better as that picnic area behind McDonald’s on College Ave. The new addition of mountain biking trails should change all that, however.

The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board approved a proposal from Ozark Off-Road Cyclists last year to build a multi-use loop around the park and a series of mountain bike trails within Gregory Park. The improvements on Gregory Park will plant single track mountain bike trails smack dab in the middle of Fayetteville, Arkansas! There’s also talk of a pump track and skills course.

We can’t wait to get out and ride the trails around Gregory Park, but there’s still a lot of work to be done. The OORC has hosted 3 work events work events so far, and the next one is happening tomorrow January 14th from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.

This is a family friendly volunteer work event open to all ages. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and get dirty. Wear appropriate shoes and clothing. Bring work gloves and a water bottle, and the OORC will bring the tools, snacks, and hydration.

For more information about the work event, check out the OORC website.

We hope to see you there!
