Drive just eight miles northeast of Little Rock and you’ll find the quiet suburb of Sherwood, Arkansas. Sherwood began as a small farming community in the early 1900s and wasn’t incorporated until 1948.
What began as a pastoral area has become a thriving, fast-growing city that still retains its rural charm. With several local parks and a recreation center, there’s plenty to do in Sherwood.
Burns Park is just six miles away in North Little Rock. It is a 1,600 acre park featuring a pre-civil war log cabin, a covered bridge, a 36-hole golf course, an amusement park, and a waterslide all on the banks of the Arkansas River.
With nearby colleges and universities, a low crime rate, and beautiful neighborhoods, it is easy to see why Sherwood continues to grow with new residents renting apartments here.
