Lake Fayetteville is comprised of 458 acres of land and 194 acres of water. In 1948 bonds were issued to construct Lake Fayetteville. The lake was completed in 1949. The lake was named Lake Fayetteville in 1950. The Beaver Water District was established in 1959 by Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers and Bentonville to provide the cities with treated water from Beaver Lake.
There are several components of Lake Fayetteville including Veterans’ Memorial, Boat Dock and Marina / Fishing, Lake Fayetteville Softball Complex, North Shore and the Botanical Gardens of the Ozarks. There is a 5.5 mile nature trail around the lake as well as 2 miles of hard surface trail that, when completed, will circle the lake as well.
The trail is really nice to go jogging, biking, or just walk.
