Located deep in the beautiful pine forests of southern Arkansas, Magnolia is one of this state’s treasures. As you enjoy the fragrant blossoms on the Magnolia trees lining the courthouse square you realize you are somewhere special. Historic downtown has been revitalized and has many charming boutiques and locally owned restaurants to satisfy any appetite. Come and tour our landmark Magnolia Murals, which colorfully portray our historic downtown.
Magnolia is the home of Southern Arkansas University and our city benefits from all the amenities a university brings. In May of each year, we host the Magnolia Blossom Festival™ and World Championship Steak Cook-Off™. It is a weekend full of family fun and entertainment.
LOGOLY STATE PARK
Logoly State Park is located 10 miles north of Magnolia on Columbia 47 at McNeil. It was Arkansas’s first environmental education state park. The majority of this beautifully forested 368 acre park has been designated a state natural area because of the many rare and unique plants found there.
The park offers visitors twenty picnic sites, two nature trails, a Visitor Information Center, which features an environmental exhibit room, a pavilion, and a tent camping facility with a bathhouse.
