City officials will host
two three public tours of the Fay Jones Woods construction site for residents interested in learning more about the project.
Tours are planned for 3 p.m. Saturday, April 23 and 3 p.m. Wednesday, May 4. A third tour was added on May 9.
The project is part of the first phase of the planned 50-acre outdoor public space in downtown Fayetteville that’s now known as The Ramble.
The Fay Jones Woods area is set to include accessible trails, a canopy walk, an overlook, a picnic area, and restoration of Tanglewood Branch Creek.
The first phase of work also includes a redesign of West Avenue and improvements to the Razorback Greenway through the planned corridor.
A later phase will include redevelopment of the West Avenue parking lot across from the Walton Arts Center by Dickson Street. A new parking deck will replace the lot, which is set to become a civic area with water features, a lawn, event spaces, pathways and two multi-use buildings.
