Parks & Natural Areas

  1. Cataract Lake County Park

    The redevelopment of Cataract Lake County Park is one of the projects identified and funded by the Coconino Parks and Open Space Program (CPOS), a sales tax initiative approved by Coconino County voters in 2002 that levies a capital projects tax of one-eighth of one cent per dollar on all sales within Coconino County over an estimated term of ten years. The proceeds are dedicated to land acquisition and park development.

  2. Fort Tuthill County Park

    The historic Fort Tuthill County Park is nestled in cool Ponderosa pines three miles south of Flagstaff. The 413-acre regional park is the home of the annual Coconino County Fair (Labor Day weekend) and the nationally-awarded Amphitheater. It also features a Military Museum, campground, picnic areas, tennis courts, and scenic trails. In the summer Fort Tuthill is bustling with a variety of special events, camping, and picnicking.

  3. Louise Yellowman County Park

  5. Pumphouse County Natural Area

    Pumphouse County Natural Area is a spring-fed wetland, one of the rarest wildlife habitat resources in Arizona! As with any wetland, it has higher biological activity than the surrounding landscape.

  6. Raymond County Park

    Raymond County Park is located in Kachina Village, 7 miles south of Flagstaff. Its redevelopment in 2010 includes the ball field, ramadas, basketball court and restroom building. A Watchable Wildlife Viewing Platform is installed to complement adjacent Pumphouse County Natural Area, a popular wildlife viewing area in the springtime that emphasizes protection of wetland habitat and water resources.

  7. Rogers Lake County Natural Area

    In 2010, Coconino County succeeded in acquiring 2,250 acres of State Trust lands, including 1,400 acres of wetland, for the Rogers Lake County Natural Area.

  8. Sawmill Multicultural Art and Nature Park

    Sawmill Multicultural Art & Nature County Park was built on a "brownfield" where one of Flagstaff's first sawmills operated from 1908 to 1993. The logging and lumber industry shaped the structure of Flagstaff by attracting Mexican, African American, Swedish, Polish, and Italian families to work at the mills. The park offers recreational and educational opportunities. Its backyard wildlife habitat gardens show how a contaminated industrial site can be transformed into an environmental and aesthetic amenity. Its public art celebrates the diversity of the surrounding community.
