Louise Yellowman County Park

The park will reopen on Monday, March 21, 2022.

Coconino County will reopen Louise Yellowman County Park in Tuba City on Monday, March 21, 2022, after park closure during the COVID-19 pandemic. Coconino County Parks and Recreation closed Louise Yellowman County Park in March 2020 due to increasing COVID-19 cases on the Navajo Nation. 

Coconino County has worked with the Tuba City Chapter House and local area health representatives on re-opening the County Park as soon as possible. The decision to reopen Louise Yellowman County Park was made in collaboration with Tuba City leadership and health representatives based on the decrease in the number of new COVID-19 cases and the increase in vaccination availability and distribution.

Coconino County Parks and Recreation and its partners encourage visitors to practice the 3 Ws to reduce the risk of COVID-19 and its variants: 

  • Wear a mask
  • Watch your distance
  • Wash your hands.

Additionally, Coconino County Parks and Recreation Department is not approving permits for any special events or ramada use and is asking the public to avoid gathering in groups of 15 or more. Park hours are 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, and the park restrooms remain closed. 

Louise Yellowman County Park, located in Tuba City, is one of the most beloved and visited parks in Coconino County. Coconino County is pleased to make this important community space available once again.

Land acquisition and construction of the park was funded by the Heritage Fund Grant, Coconino Parks and Open Space (CPOS) tax initiative. Land acquisition was furthered by a partial land donation by the former landowner, Babbitt Brothers Trading Company.

The name Tuba City "Tonanes dizi" or "tangled waters," most likely refers to the many springs found below the grounds surface. Founded in 1903, Tuba City is a hub for the surrounding communities, with the area's hospital, medical center, administrative offices, and schools.
