Springdale is a Play City USA, with four major parks, an aquatic center, a community skate park, and the region’s only youth baseball/softball fields with artificial turf. Residents of Springdale can enjoy all the outdoor recreation that Northwest Arkansas is known for, but there are also many opportunities to delve into the area’s past for history buffs. Springdale originated in the 1850s as a small farming community named Shiloh. Today, the Shiloh Museum offers Ozark history and buildings dating back to the 1850s, as well as interpretive programs and historical exhibits about the region. The Butterfield Overland trail is part of the Arkansas Heritage Trails System, a statewide system of historic trails promoting cultural and heritage tourism. A major hub for the regional trail system and passenger rail in Northwest Arkansas, it also provides residents with opportunities for great shopping at unique local stores, distinctive boutiques, and specialty shops.
The Downtown Springdale Alliance hosts many community events throughout the year. A few of these events include the Downtown Springdale Farmers Market, free yoga in Shiloh Square, and community dinners that take over the street. The Arts Center of the Ozarks in Downtown Springdale presents wonderful community theater productions, musical concerts, visual arts exhibitions, and classes for all ages.

The Ozark MMJ Card process: a potential patient will submit the patient information form found on our website and upload a record of a qualifying condition. Within one business day, the patient will receive a phone call to schedule a concierge appointment. Visits generally take about 15 minutes, but extra time is reserved so the doctor is able to answer any questions the patient may have. Upon conclusion of the certification, the patient will receive the Physician’s Written Certification required for a State-issued medical marijuana card. We guide every patient through the process of applying with the state of Arkansas, once you have received your medical recommendation from Ozark MMJ Card’s concierge physician.
For patients without documentation of a qualifying condition, an appointment will need to be scheduled with our concierge service to confirm qualification before proceeding with medical marijuana card certification. Per HIPAA regulations, any information obtained between a physician and a patient in a bona fide medical arrangement is completely confidential and private. This is known as Protected Health Information and a third party can only obtain it with the written consent of the patient. Qualification is not guaranteed. Qualifying is based on the doctor’s determination, qualifying conditions, and a patient’s complete medical history.
Ozark MMJ Cards (Arkansas Medical Marijuana Card) was founded by Dr. Daniel Whitelocke to ensure patients receive quality care and have access to alternative medicines including medical cannabis. After extensive research on the benefits of medical marijuana card programs in other states, Dr. Whitelocke decided he wanted to help patients by offering affordable medical cannabis card certifications.
