Forrest City sits atop Crowley's Ridge, the rugged and beautiful outcropping that runs from Missouri through Arkansas. The Ridge rises from the rich Delta farmland surrounding the city, creating interesting landscape contrasts in the area. With friendly people, little traffic congestion, and a down-home atmosphere, Forrest City is the ideal spot to live. Just 45 minutes from Memphis and a little over an hour from Little Rock, the town offers small town convenience and big city access. Zipping around town to run errands or conduct business is a breeze, and you'll find that you can be home from work in time to play ball with the kids or walk your pets. However, there is also sufficient cultural, social and recreational activity to keep those who like a busy social calendar active.
Excellent public and private schools and quality healthcare are taken for granted in the area. Recreational opportunities abound. The area is home to Village Creek State Park, Arkansas' largest and the area has bragging rights for fishing and hunting areas frequented by outdoorsmen from all over the United States.
