How Memorial Park Came to Be

The City was awarded a Design Excellence Grant up to $300,000 for the design of the park by the Walton Family Foundation in October 2016. 
CARBO landscape architectural firm out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana is the firm awarded the contract for the Design Excellence grant from the Walton Family Foundation. A Request for proposals was published November 2016 and the firm was officially approved by the Siloam Springs Board of Directors Tuesday, March 7, 2017. 

On November 21, 2017, plans for the (previously known as) Medical Springs Park Final Design were presented to the Board of Directors. The total estimated cost at this meeting was around $3,400,000. The plans were based on 50% drawings, and the estimated cost did not include the additional costs in design fees, the furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FFE), bike racks, limestone block, or pre-construction fees. These additional costs would have increased the original estimate to $3,660,000.

Construction of the park began May 26, 2018.
