Sports and Recreation
Exercise is one of the primary ways that Siloam Springs residents practice wellness, and our location in Northwest Arkansas makes it easy to enjoy a wealth of natural beauty and outdoor recreational activities. Siloam Springs Parks & Recreation operates tennis courts, softball fields, a soccer complex, outdoor volleyball court, playgrounds, a skate park, and a family aquatic center during the summer. The Dogwood Springs Heritage Trail provides 11.5 miles of paved surface for walking, running and biking between parks and green spaces in the city with many more miles planned.
City Lake Park invites you to grab your favorite fishing rod and reel and head out to the reservoir for a day of angling for catfish, bream, bluegill, largemouth bass, rock bass, sunfish, drum, carp and yellow bass. The lake shore is a great place to spot a variety of birds, otters and other wildlife while you enjoy the picnic areas, new soft surface mountain bike trails or launch your boat into the water.
