The City of Fayetteville invites citizens to help maintain and grow our community's urban forest by taking home a FREE tree and/or shrub during the annual Celebration of Trees. Fayetteville Parks and Recreation staff and the City of Fayetteville Urban Forestry Advisory Board host this local celebration of Arbor Day on a Saturday morning in late October.
In 2015, Fayetteville Parks and Recreation launched the Fayetteville Race Series, comprising 6 to 8 annual race events that vary between running, cycling, and multi-sport activities. Each event is different and the series offers something for everyone. The Fayetteville Race Series began as a grassroots effort and has continued to grow to become a premier race series in the state of Arkansas.
