BEST Place to Fish in Sherwood Arkansas

If you enjoy fishing, you’ll love the community fishing pond in Sherwood! Actually named the Barnhardt Park, we just call it “the pond in Sherwood.”

My husband and I love to take our kids there. We especially like walking around the paved trail and watching the ducks.

I contacted the Director of Parks and Recreation to get the full details of the pond and park.

“The pond was developed in the very early 2000’s and is stocked by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission on their schedule. They stock in the winter with trout and summer with catfish and a few other species.”
