Park History

Walker Park was the second park added to the city parks system in 1949, and is known as the home of "baseball for youth" and a place to play soccer, ultimate Frisbee, horseshoes, handball/racquetball, tennis, skateboarding, for picnicking or a place to have a family or social gathering. Walker Park has been developed into a highly utilized park that meets a variety of recreational needs for the community to enjoy.

Citizens may learn about the history of South Fayetteville by viewing the mural painted on the exterior walls of the handball court located off of 15th Street.  Dating back to the early 1800’s, the mural portrays the life and times of South Fayetteville, Arkansas.  The idea was to use the drab gray concrete walls of the court as a canvas to create a pictorial history of South Fayetteville. The mural is a community project; it depicts community and was created by and for the community.  The image to the left shows the artists and the east side of the wall near completion.  The key to the mural is provided below.
