Location

Gulley Park
1850 E. Township Street
Fayetteville, AR 72703

In an effort to be more sustainable, we encourage you to walk, bike, or carpool to Gulley Park.

There is a large parking lot on the west side of Gulley Park (off Old Wire) as well as a smaller parking lot on the south side (off Township). When these parking spaces are full, we recommend that runners park on the street in the surrounding neighborhoods.
