News Release

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Russellville Site Office advises that Riverview Park will be closed to all traffic until further notice beginning Monday Nov. 16.

The park has been closed to all vehicular traffic since the May 2019 flood, but visitors were still permitted to access the shoreline within the park to fish. Beginning Monday, the park will be closed to all traffic, including pedestrian access for fishing, sightseeing, etc. Contract crews will be working at the Dardanelle Powerhouse and along the bank at Riverview Park to repair erosion damage caused by the high-water event that occurred early last summer.

As an alternative, park visitors looking to hike, fish, walk, or just enjoy the beautiful fall weather and colors can visit the day use area at Old Post Road Park which is located just across the river from Riverview Park.

We appreciate your patience during this time. For more information or questions, please contact the Russellville Site Office at 479-968-5008.
