New Park Planned for Siloam Springs

SILOAM SPRINGS -- Siloam Springs is working to turn the old abandoned Rosebud Trailer Park into a two-acre park.
SILOAM SPRINGS -- A new park is being planned for one Northwest Arkansas city. Siloam Springs is working to turn the old abandoned Rosebud Trailer Park into a two-acre park. According to the Parks and Rec Department, the new green space would also feature a playground, basketball courts and a splash pad.

"I think it's a great thought, a great gesture for something that's been desired by many of our residents, especially on this side of town," says Scott Hodge, the manager of the Siloam Springs Parks and Recreation Department. "To have this type of amenity down here that would be especially as nice as what the conceptual would come up to be."

The City of Siloam Springs is purchasing the condemned trailer park land for $56,000, well under its appraised value. City leaders are also working to get money from the state to help fund the project, in addition to working it into the city's 2014 budget.
