McKee Foods has partnered with city of Gentry to develop outdoor trails in the Flint Creek Nature Area that will also include a stocked lake for fishing, fishing dock and other outdoor activities.
Trails used for walking and biking are a part of leadership efforts in Northwest Arkansas to offer a quality of life for residents in Benton and Washington counties.
The new development at Flint Creek will also connect to the Razorback Greenway, a 37-mile shared-use trail that connects Bella Vista with Fayetteville. This effort is part of McKee Foods corporate Outdoor Happiness Movement, that is designed to help families stay healthy and spend quality time outdoors, according to Chris McKee, executive vice president of marketing for McKee Foods.
“We are pleased to have been part of the Gentry community for the past 34 years and are excited about the Flint Creek Nature Area and trail system,” said Tim Broughton, vice president of McKee Foods’ Gentry operations. “McKee Foods has always placed a priority on the health, safety and well-being of employees and their families. Our work family is excited about experiencing and sharing our Outdoor Happiness in Northwestern Arkansas.”
