Dardanelle offers many recreational opportunities.  The Community Center offers a basketball court, a pickle ball court, a computer room and a performance stage.  The Center can be rented for any number of social events or business meetings. 

Merritt Park offers baseball and softball fields, playground equipment, picnic area, a nature walking trail and a skateboard facility.  In 2019 a disc golf course was added. 

The Riverfront area of the city offers ball fields, picnic area, playground equipment, and a walking trail as well as the host site for festivals. 

Our Gazebo is the site for numerous events throughout the year.

In 2018 the City added property to the Pecan Street Park.  The Recreation Department is developing this property into a soccer complex, a playground and dog park.

An Event Center is being built at 107 N. Front Street and should be open by early 2023.

Mr. Willie Lawhon is the supervisor of the Parks and Recreation Department.
