1. Attend and/or participate in sporting events.

Bryant has great sporting opportunities for kids and adults. The Parks Department has no shortage of well-attended sporting events. Bishop Park, located at 6401 Boone Rd, is so much more than just a park. It is a large multipurpose community center. The park has space for almost any type of sports residents are interested in.  

The Bryant community comes together to play, cheer, and perhaps learn a new sport. — Anyone up for some inner tube water polo? 

The exceptional schools in Bryant offer more than just top-rated education. They have thriving sports teams. Support and team spirit are readily apparent around Bryant businesses, neighborhoods, and community events. 

Youth baseball teams in Bryant also have something to cheer about with more than a few district, state, and regional championships. The programs for youth baseball are exceptional and the games are a great way to bring the community together. 

Baseball and football aren’t the only sporting activities bringing the community together. For example, HOSA, a club at Bryant High School, hosts a 5K run at Bryant Stadium every year. The best part? All the runners are dressed in their best elf costume. 

The “Running Of The Elves 5K” is a community-centered event. You can expect Best Dressed Elf awards — if you don’t like sleigh bells, maybe sit this one out — and several activities for kids. 

2. Find new-to-you items at vintage shops.

Bryant is home to the largest vintage market in the state of Arkansas. The Cotton Shed Vintage Market, located along highway I-30 at 22460 I-30 North, does more than host local vendors with the rarest of hidden treasures, it hosts frequent, public DIY workshops for anyone to attend.

3. Enjoy the Natural State.

The community of Bryant wouldn’t be able to enjoy the great outdoors as they do without the help of the cities parks department. Bryant Parks and Recreation knows how healthy it is for the community to get moving, develop relationships, and spend time enjoying the outdoors. They work hard to offer the best opportunities. 

Alcoa 40 Park extends the cities available areas for sports and recreation. You’ll find everything from baseball fields to fencing classes. This park also offers clean bathrooms, paved parking, and so much more. The park is located at 1110 Shobe Rd.

4. Take your dog for a walk.

Mills Park is located at 1003 Mills Park Rd. 

Alcoa 40 Park has a few perks for your four-legged buddy, too. The Bryant Bark Park was recently “un-leashed” for dogs of all sizes. It sits right between Alcoa 40 Park and Shobe Rd. 


5. Get involved with the community.
