As the cradle of mountain biking in this part of the country, Northwest Arkansas doesn’t have a shortage of places to roll into after a long, demanding ride. But the newest must-see destination may be the most impressive yet, and you certainly don’t need to arrive on two wheels to enjoy all its virtues. City Park opened during summer, and despite the searing temperatures, it has become Fayetteville’s latest, greatest local hangout spot. The folks behind Feed and Folly, another one of my favorite eateries in town, have created an environment that boasts equal parts open-air casual atmosphere and stick-to-your-ribs quality grub.

For six generations, Natalie West Bartholomew’s family has lived on and worked their family farm in Prairie Grove. In 1860, Roger J. West, Natalie’s great-great grandfather, founded the farm. Part of the Civil War Battle of Prairie Grove was fought on their land, and legend has it that the original house was used as a Union hospital during the battle.

Natalie, community president at First Community Bank, grew up on the farm. Her parents, Randy and Cheryl West, still live down the hill. When Natalie’s dad was about 16 in the 1970s, his parents built the house Natalie currently lives in with her husband, Colt, and their two boys.

Jules Taylor, a Fayetteville theater artist and educator, embraced every available arts-focused extracurricular while growing up in small-town Llano, Texas. “But it wasn’t until high school in Plano that I was able to learn about acting and theater,” Jules said. Later, while in college in Santa Fe, New Mexico, she expanded her repertoire to include film work but always in front of the camera. To work behind the camera had been a longtime dream for her. Jules’ first short film, In a World Full of Loneliness, celebrates the universal power of connection, and it will be screened this month at the 2023 Fayetteville Film Festival.
