Bentonville weather varies with the seasons. Fall and spring are moderate with pleasant temperatures for walking, however, rain showers are possible. Summers can be very hot and you may need to arrange your walks with your pup for earlier or later in the day to avoid extreme heat. Winters are cold with temperatures dipping below the freezing mark. Good, warm outerwear and footwear are a must if you and your pup want to enjoy daily walks in Bentonville winters.
Homes in the area have vintage architecture which lends much character to the buildings in the district. The Parkwood area is very green with beautifully landscaped yards and gardens, lawns, trees, and a greenway located here.
Not all areas have sidewalks in this region, so you will need to watch out for traffic and walk facing oncoming vehicles. Fortunately, they are relatively quiet with local traffic and this is not generally a problem. Busy commercial areas to the north and east have more traffic and noise than the residential sections. Make sure you cross busy thoroughfares in the area at designated crossing points and that your dog is leashed and under control to avoid accidents.
The Town Branch Trail is part of this long greenway which is made up of 19 separate greenways, together providing a 36.7-mile trail from Bella Vista Lake to Walker Park in Fayetteville. Much of the Razorback Trail follows an old rail line and has a hard asphalt surface. This greenway is a multi-use trail and popular with cyclists, so watch out for two-wheeled traffic. The path takes you within easy reach of the Crystal Bridges Museum of Art, Pinnacle Hills Promenade, Lake Fayetteville, Lake Springdale, and Lake Bella Vista.
Dave Peel Park is also located in Parkwood. This is a small park, 2 acres in size with a pavilion for shelter on hot, sunny days.
