Welcome to the City of Goshen

Mayor Max Poye

The City of Goshen is located in the Ozark Mountains in Northwest Arkansas. With a population of 1,071 in 2010 and an estimated population of 1,879 in 2018, Goshen AR is situated seven miles east of Fayetteville where White River and Richland Creek converge at a landmark known locally as "The Twin Bridges," a favorite spot for white bass fishing in the spring.

The City of Goshen provides small-town charm and atmosphere with an eclectic mix of rural and residential.  It has a rich history, including families who have owned farms for generations.  It is also a growing community, including well-planned subdivisions providing housing to new families, from retired couples to young professionals who are employed in nearby larger cities.  The landscape is dotted with hay fields, cattle farms and equine facilities, giving the community a rural flavor.

Goshen is convenient to the University of Arkansas and all of the shopping, dining, entertainment and venues available in Northwest Arkansas.  It is in close proximity to Wal-Mart & Tyson Home offices and popular destinations such as Beaver Lake, Crystal Bridges Museum, The Amp (Arkansas Music Pavilion/Wal-Mart Amphitheatre), the Walton Arts Center, Devil's Den State Park, Northwest Arkansas Regional Greenway Bicycle/Pedestrian Trails, War Eagle Mill Arts and Crafts Fair, and Eureka Springs.  Nearby communities come together for Polo in the Ozarks, a fund-raising event for Life Styles, Inc., held annually in September in Goshen at the Buell Farm.

If you are looking for a small community with a rural flavor, while having easy and convenient access to all of the amenities of nearby urban areas, Goshen is that place.  Come and visit us and see for yourself!
