Exploring the park grounds is a great way to get exercise and learn more about the history of that makes Fort Smith a special place.

Here are some of the highlights:

Parade Ground
Boundary Line
Initial Point Marker
River Loop Trail
First Fort Smith
Officers' Quarters
Cistern
Commissary
Guard House
Memorial Gate
Gallows
Visitor Center – Former Barracks, Courthouse, and Jail
Frisco Train Station


The sidewalks are accessible with a few inclines. Be mindful crossing the railroad tracks - as they are active tacks and the surface is a little uneven adjacent to and between the rails.
