Aall sessions are from 9:00 to 11:00 A.M. ideas will be put together and submitted to the city council later this year.
The city of Springdale is asking for nominations to win a grant through the “Meet Me At The Park” campaign. Springdale residents can nominate the city for the $20,000 grant, any time in April. Just take a selfie in your favorite park and use the #meetmeatthepark, #parkies, and #beinspired. The city says parks are essential to the city’s health and well-being and it would use the grant to make improvements if chosen.
