Arvest Ballpark is a stadium in Springdale, Arkansas. It is primarily used for baseball, as the home of the Northwest Arkansas Naturals of the Texas League. The ballpark has a capacity of 7,305 people and opened in 2008. Arvest Ballpark was designed by the Kansas City architecture firm Populous. 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

  • What a great park! The fans, including the opposing team fans, are fantastic. The food and drinks are reasonably priced and all the staff are very friendly. I love minor league ball parks.
  • One of the best AA Minor League baseball venues. Great prices on tickets. Love thirsty Thursday games. They also have a great selection of craft beer for those not wanting domestic. Also love going to the games when they have fireworks. It's not uncommon to see major league players (KC Royals) on rehab playing a game after an injury. Great place to bring the kids.
  • We have had an amazing time here in the past but the last game we went to the pretzels were cold and stale and they began to put up all the kids play area and stopped the train rides only half way through the game which left my kids restless and ready to leave early. In the past we have enjoyed going, especially when they do the fireworks afterwards which is always spectacular!
  • Great spot to hang with family and friends, super fun & exciting! Very happy to have the Naturals (KC Royals AA Team) here in NWA! Can't wait to catch another game... p.s. try the bbq nachos!
  • What a great minor league baseball park. Every seat is a good one. A good place to take the kiddos.
