Visitors can relax and picnic with wonderful views of the city and countryside.

Ft. Smith, named for Colonel Robert F. Smith, was erected in September 1861 as a safeguard against conflicting armies battling on either side of the state line. By spring 1862, the Union troops at Ft. Smith were downsized.

The park is closed October 15-April 15.
