With 18 parks and recreational facilities, its own sports complex and recreation center and a world-class golf course, Sherwood is the epitome of an active, thriving community. This central Arkansas gem tucks neatly into a commercial and residential enclave within a few short miles of North Little Rock and Little Rock.

Headlining the attractions is the Greens at North Hills, the only Robert Trent Jones Sr.-designed golf course in the state. Other great facilities include the Bill Harmon Recreation Center, featuring a gymnasium, track, lap pool and more, as well as the Sherwood Sports Complex, a magnet for regional and national baseball and softball league tournaments.

Sherwood also offers activities for those looking for something a little slower, including miles of walking paths, the Jack Evans Senior Center and the Fairway Dog Park to give four-legged family members some room of their own. Annual festivals are widely attended in this tight-knit town. Two of the most popular are Sherwood Fest and the Trail of Lights & Christmas Parade.

CHI St. Vincent North offers a full range of inpatient, outpatient and emergency services (like a Level IV Trauma Center) and CHI St. Vincent Rehabilitation Hospital provides excellent therapies.

For small-town living at its finest—close to the action, but far from the noise —Sherwood is the place to be.
