Escape to small town Arkansas!
With a population of just a few thousand, Barling is a tight-knit community located on the southeastern outskirts of the Fort Smith metro. Residents are friendly, neighborhoods are extremely safe and peaceful, and the cost of living is lower than the national average and most cities in the state. Barling is the kind of place where strangers lend a helping hand, social circles revolve around church and ballgames, and the local schools teach more traditional values. For those looking to experience all four seasons, Barling is perfect—the summers are hot, winters are cold, and fall and spring are absolutely gorgeous. Plus, being so close to Fort Smith (Arkansas’ 2nd largest city), our community gets the best of both worlds—a nice small town with the convenience of big city shopping, restaurants, and entertainment.
