Picnic on the Farm postcard


  1. Gulley park, Wilson Park, and the ark in Farmington are some of the places I love to picnic with my granddaughter or with friends.

  2. Another fun family event! This area continues to surprise me. I haven’t lived here long enough to have s favorite picnic spot yet! But I’m looking forward to finding one! As a SAHM of 3 I’m always looking for fun family outings that are also special to the area.

  3. We like Wilson and Gulley parks in Fayetteville; and the new Willie George Park in Springdale. These parks are great!
