Dogpatch theme park leased to Heritage USA


The owners of the former Dogpatch theme park in Newton County have reached an agreement to lease the property to Heritage USA, which is operated by David Hare.

The Arkansas Democrat Gazette reports in a video posted online, Hare said the property will be developed to become Heritage USA Dogpatch Resort.

Bud Pelsor, one of the property owners, said there’s an option to buy at the end of the lease.

Pelsor said the lease will begin March 1. He wouldn’t reveal the length of the lease or anything about the financial agreement.

Heritage USA is not affiliated with the former Christian theme park of the same name that closed in 1989 in South Carolina.
