Since it was created through a gift by Bernice Jones in 1995, the Jones Center in Springdale has been an inclusive place for people all over Northwest Arkansas to gather to learn, play, and belong.
The center’s motto, in fact, is “all are welcome.”
That philosophy, along with the fact that the facility itself is one of the best of its kind you’ll find anywhere in the county, have helped the Jones Center enrich the lives of countless residents of this incredible region we all live in.
That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that the Jones Center is also the newest sponsor of the Fayetteville Flyer.
For those who aren’t familiar, the Jones Center was created to fulfill Bernice’s vision of a community center, and the power of recreation to serve families, strengthen communities, and generally make this area a better place to live for everyone.
That is exactly what the center has done for the past 20 years.
It has a year-round ice arena for skating and hockey, both amateur and collegiate. It has a junior Olympic-size indoor pool for swimming laps, and an awesome activity pool with a great water slide for the kids to enjoy. It has a basketball court, a track, a conference center, a gym, outdoor walking trails, and more.
The center also helps to organize countless activities throughout the year, including everything from swim teams to hockey, gymnastics, valley, aikido, tae kwon do, figure skating, and more, all of it priced so that every family can afford to participate.
The center is home to the Razorback Hockey team (there happen to be matches you can check out this weekend).
They offer a master’s swimming class three times per week (Mon., Wed., and Fri. at 5:15 a.m.), which is perfect for folks training for a marathon or who just want to get serious about swimming for health. All for just $25 per month.
They have fun social dance classes on a variety of styles, from ballroom, to salsa, swing, and more. Six-week sessions start Sept. 17, and cost just $40 per person.
Memberships to the Jones Center fitness areas start at just $60 per year for adults ($5/month), and all-access passes including access to the gym, fitness center, fitness classes, pools, and public ice sessions are just $200/year.
There’s a ton more, and we can’t wait to help them spread the word to let you guys know about all the fun stuff that happens there.
Please help us welcome them to the Flyer family.
