I love Bell Park in Greenwood! It’s right in the middle of town and yet the views are spectacular! Bell Park is located right outside of Fort Smith. Because it’s such a gorgeous and accessible elopement spot in Fort Smith, this spot is popular for weddings and elopements! If you’ve been considering an adventurous wedding in Arkansas, Bell Park is a spot that is often overlooked but is so beautiful and so worthy of your intimate wedding or elopement!
Bell Park, Greenwood Arkansas Elopement
Considering an elopement at Bell Park? It’s a beautiful spot! First, you’ll want to visit the park to make sure it fits the vibe of your elopement or intimate wedding. Bell Park is beautiful for its’ sprawling views of the valley below and the Ouachitas to the south. It’s the perfect space for an adventurous elopement in Arkansas without having to drive too far out of town!
Crystal and Duke eloped here just last month and caught some of the beautiful fall colors!
- Decide what time of year you want to elope! Spring and Fall are easy favorites for their seasonal weather and gorgeous full foliage. However, you can also find amazing views in the summer and a less crowded park in the winter and early spring!
- Notify Greenwood City Parks and Recreation personnel about your elopement plans to gather any important information about your elopement or intimate wedding. There is a large pavilion near the overlook that you could rent out for your reception. You’ll need to contact the park in order to rent out the space.
- Find a place to stay nearby if you don’t want to make the one hour drive to Fayetteville or the two hour drive to Little Rock- There are tons of Airbnbs and hotels in the Fort Smith Metro Area.
- Book your vendors! There are tons in Fort Smith! Or you can look nearby in Fayetteville/Northwest Arkansas.
- Enjoy your elopement and remember to practice Leave No Trace! More information on LNT principles can be found here.
