Fayetteville's newest park, the Ramble, offers a getaway in nature right in the middle of town. You can enter the park many different ways, but if it's your first time, navigate to 255 S. West Avenue. Parking is available across the street at Fayetteville Public Library.
The Ramble was reclaimed from an area that was once overgrown with a tangle of invasive shrubs. The new park provides access to nature and the once-hidden Tanglewood Branch creek.
The Razorback Greenway, a paved, multi-use trail that is the backbone of Northwest Arkansas' active transportation network, runs right through the center of the Ramble. Connecting to the Greenway are a series of wheelchair accessible trails that meander from West Avenue and Fayetteville Public Library through the tree canopy and curve down the hill to a scenic creek overlook and bridge. Along the main trail are soft surface paths where you'll discover a spring and newly planted native wildflowers.
A stone ampitheatre provides access to Tanglewood Branch, where you can spot minnows or try the stepping stones.
On Fridays in August, don't miss Weekend Starts in the Ramble. Live music and hands-on arts activities start at 5pm.
Whether you explore on roller skates or take it easy on one of the dozens of unique benches, The Ramble should be on your Fayetteville bucket list!
