Springdale Parks and Recreation has been awarded a $13,000 grant from the Wal-Mart Foundation as part of the its Northwest Arkansas Giving Program.
Parks and Recreation will utilize this funding source to further its community outreach, such as through the purchase of equipment for the "Movies in the Park" program. This program offers families a friendly, safe environment to enjoy a movie at no cost to them. The next and final "Movies in the Park" event this year will be a showing of "The Lego Batman Movie" on Friday, August 11 at the Springdale Recreation Center. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the movie will start at 7 p.m.
