Information on:

Prairie Grove - Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park

506 East Douglas Street

Recognized nationally as one of America's most intact Civil War battlefields, Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park protects the battle site and interprets the Battle of Prairie Grove, where on December 7, 1862, the Confederate Army of the Trans-Mississippi clashed with the Union Army of the Frontier in a day of fierce fighting resulting in about 2,700 casualties. This marked the last major Civil War engagement in northwest Arkansas.

Here you can walk over hallowed ground where history happened. Walk along the ridge and in the valley where the heaviest fighting took place. Follow the one-mile Battlefield Trail or travel the park's five-mile Driving Tour. Tour the historic structures in the Ozark village.

In December of every even numbered year there is a really nice reenactment. Otherwise has a decent playground. Lots of shade and a good walking/running path with a good number of elevation changes. Many different events happen here all year round.

This is a beautiful well-maintained park. All the historical markers and buildings are in excellent shape and there is a brand new pavilion available for events. The Latta Barn is an very nice space for parties and events that require kitchen space. The 1-mile walking trail is gorgeous and allows you to hit several of the historical markers at the park.
