City of Ward


I’m Charles “Charlie” Gastineau, Mayor of the City of Ward.  I'd like to welcome you to our website.  Having an estimated population of over 5,000, Ward is the second largest city in Lonoke County and the 2nd fastest growing community in the Metroplan (central Arkansas) area.  Ward is, by definition, a bedroom community with most of our working residents commuting to and from work in other cities.  It is my commitment to move Ward ForWard, opening new opportunities for businesses and new residents alike to find a home in Ward.  If you are looking to locate to a growing community that still has that small-town charm, consider making Ward your new home. I encourage all Ward residents to get involved in the community--- volunteer to coach a youth sports team, or just to help with our Parks & Recreation Department, join the Chamber of Commerce, attend a church of your choosing, start a non-profit, or…. open your own business.   This is YOUR community...get involved!  My email address is and my city cell phone number is 501-743-2501. Contact me with your concerns, comments, and ideas for our city.  Join us as we move Ward ForWard.
