The Jones Center for Families Hosts Fall Festival

The Jones Center for Families in Springdale, Arkansas is an absolute gem! Remember the old saying, “You get what you pay for?” Well, the Jones Center proves the saying wrong.

The Center welcomes everyone from NW Arkansas and the surrounding areas. Residency is not a requirement. Neither is money a requirement. There is only one requirement - all visitors must behave as ladies and gentlemen.

Virtually everything is FREE.

The Center offers an unbelievable array of activities for individuals and families. Just imagine participating at no charge in:

- Ice skating on a regulation size rink (skates provided).
- Swimming or exercising in two pools.
- Programs for all ages up to and including seniors.
- Day care while a parent is using the center.
- Fitness center containing stationary weight and cardiovascular equipment.
- 300-seat chapel for weddings, receptions, showers, etc.
- Family movies.
- A one-mile walking trail.
- Nine-hole disc golf course.
- Playground accessible to all, including handicapped.
- 30 computers including Internet access.
- More than 25 meeting rooms of all sizes for birthday parties and celebrations or non-profit business groups.

As if all that were not enough, the Jones Center also hosts activities throughout the year such as the Fall Festival coming up next Saturday, October 26. At least 8,000 children and parents arrive annually for fun, music, entertainment, physical activities, arts and crafts, and food – at no cost.

There are also special programs to keep kids busy during spring and winter breaks. During the summer months, free concerts are held on the lawn.

You can also take advantage of various educational opportunities, such smoking cessation, safe baby-sitting instruction, and preparing your child to succeed.

The Jones Center for Families has been an important part of NW Arkansas since its inception in 1996. I really cannot paint a complete picture in this short space of everything it offers to the public. Seeing is believing - and I encourage you to do just that.

The Jones Center has always shone like a beacon. If you haven’t been there yet, check it out! In these tough economic times, it might be just what you and your family are looking for.
