The Design Excellence Grant will help us create a regionally connected campus aligned with the Springdale Downtown Revitalization Plan. Ultimately, the redesign of the outdoor spaces will transform our grounds into a regional destination and create stronger physical connections to downtown Springdale and the Razorback Regional Greenway trail system.
Denver-based Civitas, Inc., a landscape architecture firm, has been hired to create initial plans to redesign the campus. Early ideas include park-like green spaces, inviting bike paths, creative play structures and enhanced recreational amenities to serve our diverse population in an accessible and welcoming environment.
As community members, we want your input for making this a campus that individuals, families and groups will enjoy. The Jones Center and the Civitas team will host several upcoming events to get your ideas, wishes, and hopes for the campus. In early 2021, events in January, February, and March will include collecting additional input and sharing preliminary plans as they are being developed.
