Welcome to the City of Arkadelphia
A Great Place to Call Home!
The City of Arkadelphia is located at the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains in Clark County Arkansas and is a 1st Class city with a population of 10,912. It is located on Interstate 30 about halfway between Little Rock and Texarkana, and also on Highway 7 about 35 miles from Hot Springs. This location makes easy access to the amenities of larger cities while enjoying the safety of a town published as “50 Fabulous Places to Raise Your Family: The Best Places to Live, Work, and Play.”
Arkadelphia’s recreation opportunities are plentiful with local facilities such as Feaster Park, a 78-acre park with picnic areas, playground, outdoor basketball courts, restrooms, softball fields, and pavilion. Feaster Park is also home to the Arkadelphia Aquatic Park, and Recreation Center. Feaster Trail is also a great asset of the city; it is a paved and lighted trail for use by joggers, walkers, bikers, and roller bladers that spans the length of the city. Area recreation also includes DeGray Lake only minutes from Arkadelphia, as well as both the Caddo and Ouachita Rivers.
Arkadelphia also has a strong history of education. It is home to two universities, Henderson State and Ouachita Baptist, and an outstanding public school system. Arkadelphia High School and Perritt Elementary School have both been designated among the National Schools of Excellence.
A combination of all these things and more give the people of Arkadelphia and Clark County an extraordinarily favorable quality of life, and make Arkadelphia “A Great Place to Call Home”.
