Park History

This park was acquired through the City's Park Land Dedication Ordinance. The construction of the park was partially funded with a grant from the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism Outdoor Recreation Grant Program.

The park was named for Dr. James "Doc" Mashburn, a lifelong Fayetteville resident who delivered well over 10,000 babies from 1950 to 1988. Dr. Mashburn was the epitome of charitable service, gaining the trust and admiration of all those around him for his reliable, tireless and unending contributions to the Fayetteville community.

Dr. Mashburn served on the Board of Directors of McIlroy Bank, the Washington County 4-H Board, the Fayetteville Planning Commission, the Arkansas State Police Commission and the Fayetteville Police Pension and Retirement Board. He also co-founded the Barbara Mashburn Scholarship Foundation which provides vocal music scholarships to musically talented students.
