Constructed in the 1970s, the Kingsdale Park was the first recreational amenity built in Bella Vista Village. The facility consists of three pools, measuring 23, 17 and 10 meters.

The 23-meter multi-use swimming pool accommodates all swimming lessons and general swimming for children and adults. The pool ranges from three to five feet deep, and is equipped with a water slide.
The 17 meter adult pool has a depth of three to five feet, and accommodates four different aerobics classes in addition to adult swimming.

The complex also offers a 10 meter wading pool for young children, with a depth of 1 foot.

The surrounding park hosts PVC playground equipment, with a bridge, climbing bars and slides. The complex includes an 18-hole miniature golf course and Bella Vista’s largest pavilion. Tennis Camp and Camp Bella Vista participants use the facility often during the summer months.

Kingsdale Offers a Variety of Water Fitness Classes 

Looking for a fun workout without putting a lot of stress on your joints? Several water fitness classes are being held this summer at Kingsdale Outdoor Pool, 1 Riordan Dr., in Bella Vista.  These water fitness classes are for adults of all skill levels. Participants are led through a series of cardio, strength and flexibility exercises in fairly shallow water; no need to know how to swim to attend. Exercising in water provides 15 times the resistance of exercising out of the pool; it can also prevent overheating through continuous cooling of the body. Participants should bring a water bottle, water shoes, a hat and sun block and their 2017 outdoor pool pass.

T & Th 9 to 9:45 am   Aqua Aerobics w/ Sara Macik
M-W-F 10 to 10:45 am   AM Water Fitness Class w/ Rose Scott
T & Th  5:30 to 6:15 pm   PM Water Fitness Class w/ Donna Mayberry


The above classes will be held through the month of August. Class punch cards are required for outdoor pool classes and are available for purchase at Riordan Hall.  Each class requires a specific, 10-class punch card and are available for $50.  You may try a drop-in class for $5.  A 2017 Outdoor Pool pass is also required to participate in these 45 minute classes or pay the daily pool admission rate.

For additional information on these and all fitness classes contact the Recreation office at (479) 855-5073.
