Arvest Ballpark was named the 2008 Ballpark of the year by baseballparks.comHistorySpringdale's Mayor Jerre M. Van Hoose and the head of the Chamber of Commerce, Perry Webb, knew what it would take to bring the affiliated Minor Leagues to the area. Not only would they have to find a team willing to move, they would also need to provide them with a better facility than what they would be leaving behind. A referendum was held on July 11, 2006, where local voters approved by a narrow margin the continuation of a 1% sales tax to fund the ballpark.Ground for the ballpark was broken on February 27, 2007. Construction was performed by Crossland Construction and completed in April 2008. On September 10, 2007, a naming rights deal was reach with Arvest Bank Group, Inc. of nearby Bentonville, Arkansas, and the new ballpark's official name was introduced as Arvest Ballpark on October 5, 2007.The first game played at Arvest Ballpark was the 2008 opening day game between the Naturals and the San Antonio Missions on April 10, 2008. The Naturals lost 7-1 in front of a sellout crowd of 7,820.Images

  • This is the perfect way to spend the afternoon with the family. Reasonably priced concessions (I mean bare in mind that it's a baseball park). The seats are very spacious and comfortable and there is a good amount of shade. There are plenty of really fun games for kids. This is easily one of my favorite things about northwest Arkansas. The only thing that I don't like is that it's a royals farm club, not a cardinals farm club. Oh well, GO NATURALS!!!!
  • Players were very friendly. The prices were a little high on food and drink items but they do offer specials. Was able to get close to the field without losing my wallet.
  • Very nice parking. When you walk in you just get a scent of an American tradition with the aroma of hotdogs and hamburgers. You feel like you are at home even if you don't live here it is nice and lively.
  • Beautiful ballpark set in a cow pasture. I'm sure in a year or two it will be surrounded by other shops/businesses. Fun place, though, with a good beer garden near the RF foul pole.
