THE JONES CENTER
Non-Profit Family Recreation, Education & Event Center
The Jones Center is a regional resource for youth and family recreation programming and for providing programs and facilities in downtown Springdale that bring people from all walks of life together. The 220,000 square-foot facility in Springdale features the region’s only indoor ice arena – an important amenity for the growing community – as well as the Tyson Foods Fitness Center, indoor pools complex, a gymnasium, and conference center. In addition, The Jones Center hosts arts and cultural programming and festivals that highlight the diverse cultures that make up our region, and offers classes for kids in performing arts, sports and STEM areas. Additional facilities around the campus provide housing and collaborative space for regional non-profits. Founded in 1995 by Bernice Jones, a former school teacher and wife of Harvey Jones, founder of Jones Truck Lines, The Jones Center continues to follow her dream of being a community destination where no one would be turned away due to lack of funds. Through the generous support of the Walmart Foundation, The Jones Center provides scholarship programs and activity passes to deserving families.
