Fall Fun and Bonfire at Farmland Adventures

Farmland Adventures

The Parsons family came to Northwest Arkansas around the late 1800's or early 1900's. By 1910, they had settled on a farm in the country on the east side of Springdale, AR. Now the 5th generation of the family continues to live and work on the land, and in 2012 they expanded to offer Farmland Adventures. Join us for an afternoon of fall fun! Navigate the corn maze, visit the animals in the petting zoo, go on a wagon ride, try out the pedal carts, visit the pumpkin patch and pick out your perfect pumpkin, and then finish it off roasting a hot dog or marshmallow over our private campfire. Details: We will meet at the entry at 1:30 to greet everyone and pay our admission. You will have 2 hours to participate in the actives of your choice. At 5:30, we will proceed to our private campfire to socialize and roast hot dogs or marshmallows. Please dress is layers to ensure your comfort. You will also need study footwear and it will most likely get a bit dirty- it's a farm, after all! Cost: $12/ person- This cost covers admission, most activities, and the campfire site.

Tram Tour at Dogwood Canyon

Dogwood Canyon Nature Park

The first parcels of the Dogwood Canyon property were acquired in 1990 by Johnny Morris, founder/CEO of Bass Pro Shops. The park is owned and managed by the Dogwood Canyon Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the canyon’s natural plant and wildlife environment. The Foundation promotes environmental conservation by maintaining the park and providing the public with an unspoiled setting for exploration and the enjoyment of various outdoor activities. The purposes of the Dogwood Canyon Foundation are to promote natural conservation, and to protect the natural environment and its wildlife and plant life by acquiring and maintaining ecologically significant, undeveloped land to benefit the general public. To achieve its purpose, the Foundation owns, operates and maintains Dogwood Canyon Nature Park. Aside from a few amenities to make Dogwood Canyon Nature Park more accessible to our guests, the rugged landscape has been left untouched and, with just a little imagination, you can travel back to a time when European settlers first entered the area or, even further, to explore the mark that Native Americans left on these Missouri hills and hollows. Details: Join us for a tram ride! The comfortable, open-air tram provides a 2-hour narrated tour and explores the beauty of Dogwood Canyon. We’ll wind through the canyon floor, past towering bluffs and waterfalls, and make stops at the 1800's-style Hope Wedding Chapel, Thunder Falls Crossing to feed the fish, and Glory Hole (a magnificent blue-green pool where some of our largest trout reside). Then, we'll cross the Arkansas border and enter the Bison~Elk Country pasture where you'll encounter some of the largest residents of Dogwood Canyon- American bison, elk, whitetail deer and Texas longhorn. Please dress in layers to ensure your comfort. Bring your valid photo id, camera, and sunscreen.
