I grew up in Springdale and it was a great place to live. There is a lot of people from different places around the world residing here. While the traffic can be pretty backed up for a smaller city, it could be fixed by the city officials in time. It is easy to meet new people, especially recently with our downtown being newly renovated. We have farmer markets and healthy living, along with many delicious taquerias! I would highly recommend the North West Arkansas region to everyone no matter their financial status, race, or sexual orientation. Everyone feels welcome in our fantastic city.

I enjoy the overall Springdale experience very much! The public schools around here will ensure a child's success from the first day and, by the time you are in high school, your line of work will be pinpointed and you can start taking classes that can go towards your major!

Don't forget that you always have options with Springdale. With a large Hispanic and Marshallese population, you are sure to find a variety of cultures that you don't see anywhere else. Be sure to check out our downtown! You will find a large selection of local businesses that will either fill you up or ensure that you dress to impress! With Springdale High School straight down the road, it is the place to be when hanging out with friends or planning your next community event!

I will admit that Springdale is lacking in clean and safe movie theaters. The next community event should be to remodel the theater downtown! Now that is something that every Springdale native can get behind!
Springdale is a city in Northwest Arkansas. It is one of the fastest growing cities in the region. Springdale has great people, amazing companies and teachers that want to see you succeed. I have had many experiences in this city. For example, I’ve experienced going to different schools and each teacher helps you with everything. They never want to see you fail and they are always by your side. They make sure to help you with anything. Springdale has been growing but you still know most of the people because many people are united in this city. An example is the high school football and soccer games. The stadium always gets packed. Downtown Springdale used to look like an old place but I love how they remodeled it. You now see people posting pictures of downtown Springdale on social media and the bike trail is very neat. I would like Springdale to add more things for example, stores,parks and other fun things to do.
