There's so much to do in Northwest Arkansas: world class art museums, delicious restaurants, and dazzling live entertainment. But, the secret gem of NWA are our parks systems. From state parks to city greens, there's an outdoors area for everyone! Photo credits to Philip Thomas at Novo Studio
Lake Atalanta: Nestled on the east side of Rogers is one of its hidden gems, Lake Atalanta. Named for the Greek huntress Atalanta, the park features a newly renovated playground, state of the art trails on the water, and scenic paths through the woods, Lake Atalanta is your go to for a break outdoors!
The Railyard: You wouldn't expect it, but Northwest Arkansas is quickly growing to be one of the premier biking destinations in the United States. The Railyard park in downtown Rogers offers both natural surface and paved trails for cyclers with any level of experience enjoy the park.
Devil's Den State Park: Approximately an hour south of downtown Rogers lies Devil's Den State Park. Named for the large cavern that houses one of the largest bat populations in Arkansas, the park was built in the early 1900's by the Civilian Conservation Corps. We personally recommend taking the Yellow Rock trail for its expansive views.
There's a reason Arkansas is the Natural State, and we hope that when you come to downtown Rogers, you'll stop by Dandy Roll on your way to the park!
