We stopped by to take pictures and ride the Ferris Wheel. There weren’t many people there and the diner and food truck were closed but it was fun to ride the Ferris wheel for $1.00 and see Fort Smith from the air. Great pics too!

This is supposedly the oldest operating ferris wheel in the US. Whether that's true or not, I don't know, but I do know it's worth the 10 or 15 minute stop to enjoy this attraction for just $1. Do it, if for no other reason...More

Looks like a great spot to bring the little ones for a bit. There is a carousel and a little spray park for the kiddies, and a ferris wheel if you are feeling adventurous.

This is a tiny little park with a few rides. Ferris wheel, carousel, etc. And some interesting animal structures. The Nickel and Dime Diner is also located here. Under new ownership the diner has excellent 1/2 price burgers on Mondays.
