Tiree Park in Bella Vista, AR
Tucked away in the Highlands of Bella Vista, is a gorgeous little park that really is a hidden gem. I was fortunate to live across from this park at one time and drove a street over almost daily to play and get our nature fix.
Directions to Tiree Park: Head West on Lancashire Blvd off of Hwy 71. Continue onto Highlands Blvd and about 4 miles down this country road you'll see the sign for Tiree Park/Loch Lomond.
-small playground with swings and a slide
-and it is surrounded with the woods on one side and the Loch Lomond Lake on the other. No swimming allowed unless you have a POA membership. You must also have a POA card to fish there, and of course a fishing license as well.
-Small trail across from the pavilion
-Hand pump water spout
***Fairy Home (see bottom of post)***
Fairies live here
Tiree Park has become such a special place for us that I wanted to create something unique there for others who venture out so far into the Highlands to come here. So, a few years ago I created a fairy home along the woodline at the back of the park using a small wooden door and window. The parks grounds keepers have kept it intact perfectly and over the last two years people who have happened upon it have kept it clean and added special trinkets to it. It really is a site to see, especially if you have young children! If your into GEOCAHING, you may also want to stop by and get your smiley, as I have also made this a geocache location, called An Enchanted Cache which you can see HERE. Geocacher or not, if you look behind the door, you'll find a small container with a logbook. If you visit our fairy home, feel free to sign your name :)
-How to find it: If you stand with your back to the steps of the slide you'll be facing the treeline to the woods. The fairy home is behind the two trees in front of you (a bit to your left) that are connected at the base.
