Sherwood, AR – Strong, Caring Community

I absolutely love living in Sherwood, Arkansas. I have lived here for the last 7 years and it will be my home forever. The community is amazing and the sense of being a good neighbor is so strong that no one could regret living here. The neighbors are so kind and citizens are always ready and willing to help. We can trust our neighbors around our children, and we can trust that if our child is lost, the citizens will rally around them in protection. For the most part, we all know each other, and even people we haven’t met yet are kind when they see a neighbor struggling.

Our community has a lot for families to do together. We have amazing public schools, gorgeous community parks, and a great public pool for everyone to enjoy.

We also have great local shops, as well as a few chain shops to choose from. The markets offer an amazing selection for almost any diet, and our local supermarket was happy to order specialty products that I could not find locally.
