FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) – If you traveled through Fayetteville recently you may have seen a few white signs around with the hashtag “Save Lewis.”
Lewis Park has been used for sporting events for years.
That could be coming to an end soon as the University of Arkansas, who owns the land, is planning to sell the property.
Today, many locals and Lewis Park goers joined together to try to save the park for future use by the city with a fundraiser.
"What we want to do is help facilitate that the city could potentially purchase this and hopefully get it on the bond issue in November of 2019," said Will Dockery, community organizer.
City use of the land will be coming to a close at the end of this month on June 30.
