Centennial Park at Millsap Mountain will be a cycling-activated park with state-of-the-art cyclo-cross and mountain biking facilities. Residents will be able to access trail infrastructure unlike any other in the region within an area of preserved greenspace connected to neighborhoods and Fayetteville’s existing 45 miles of shared-used paved trails and 38 miles of natural-surface trails.

The epicenter of the park is being developed for activities that attract visitors to the region and create an economic impact. World-class cyclo-cross, mountain bike, and running courses will include trails with multiple surfaces and features that build users’ skills. In February of this year, the City received notification that Fayetteville was selected to host the prestigious 2022 Cyclo-Cross World Championships. The event will bring visitors and riders from all over the world to enjoy the park and everything that Fayetteville has to offer. While courses at the park are being designed to provide unique biking experiences, training opportunities, and to host the Cyclo-Cross World Championships, the park is also being designed to provide many different activities for all residents to enjoy during non-cycling events.

The City of Fayetteville purchased the 228-acre property on Millsap Mountain, northwest of Highway 62 and I-49, from Centennial Bank in 2018. Partial funding for this project was supported by a grant from the Walton Family Foundation. The parcel’s topography features several flat acres at the crest surrounded by both steep and rolling hillsides. The property is perfectly suited for event spaces of all types and the public input session will allow the community to provide feedback on these various activities and uses of the park. Development partners include NWA Trailblazers, a non-profit organization that will manage the project.

Design concepts for the park are available on this site (see images at right), and a survey was published to receive input and feedback.

The plan for this transformative project is supported by a grant from the Walton Family Foundation to the NWA Trailblazers.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    The City of Fayetteville is working with the NWA Trailblazers and the Walton Family Foundation in the development of Centennial Park, a cycling-activated park at Millsap Mountain.  In addition to cyclo-cross and mountain bike trails, Centennial Park will offer a variety of amenities for public enjoyment. 

    This survey will provide park planners with insight into which types of amenities our community prefers for this exciting new addition to Fayetteville's parks offerings.  The survey should only take about 4-5 minutes to complete.  Note that there are places to add your own thoughts and ideas. THANK YOU for participating!
