Explore Sedona's Parks

Sedona is a city and community that straddles the county line between Coconino and Yavapai counties in the northern Verde Valley region of the U.S. state of Arizona. According to 2005 Census Bureau estimates, the population of the city is 11,220.

Sedona's main attraction is its stunning array of red sandstone formations, the Red Rocks of Sedona. The formations appear to glow in brilliant orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. The Red Rocks form a breathtaking backdrop for everything from spiritual pursuits to the hundreds of hiking and mountain biking trails.

Sedona is named after Sedona Miller Schnebly (1877�1950), the wife of the city's first postmaster, who was celebrated for her hospitality and industriousness.

Sedona Parks and Recreation

It is the mission of the Sedona Parks and Recreation Department to provide diverse year-round leisure opportunities through the preservation of open space, park settings, recreational facilities and recreation programs for the citizens, visitors and future generations of Sedona.

Botanical Gardens

Sedona�s Botanical Garden is another one of Sedona�s great pocket parks. This little jewel is tucked away on the southwest corner of the intersection of Highway 89A and Arroyo Pinon. It features native plants and arboriculture found only here in Arizona. Local citizens and organizations made donations of the plants for this garden. Stroll through the garden and take the time to look for signs identifying the plants and who donated them. This park also features several sculptures created by local artists. Look for sculptures of javalina, coyotes, rabbits, and birds or just sit in the hidden arbor and look upon the tile mosaic constructed to look like a small pool . You will love this quiet and beautiful garden spot.

Greyback Park,

Greyback Park, a quarter of a mile north of the intersection of Highway 89A and Dry Creek Road, is an example of Sedona's commitment to creating more pocket parks for the residents to enjoy. When Dry Creek Road was realigned and straightened, Greyback Park was created from the roadbed left behind. 

This park has several benches for sitting and watching birds, butterflies, and the occasional resident that happens by. Great views of Chimney Rock and Lizard Head Rock are available to anyone who visits this park. Bring a book and enjoy the landscape, or bring your lunch and take a break.

Jamesen Park

Sedona has many community and pocket parks for the visitors and residents of Sedona. Jamesen Park was one of the first to be created. It is located on the southwest corner of the intersection of Highway 89A and Northview Drive. 

It features a red brick pathway that meanders through several raised planting beds and mature trees. Bring a lunch or just stop and sit at one of the many seating areas and enjoy the beauty of this park.

Posse Grounds Park

Posse Grounds Park, located at the 525 Posse Ground Road just south of West Sedona School, is Sedona's first park.

In the past, this area was used as a staging ground for the posse. Today the park offers several amenities to the community. There are ten covered and landscaped ramadas that can be reserved for parties and special events or just used as a place to sit and enjoy lunch. 

Adjacent to the ramada area is a large playground for kids, and the kids at heart. The park has two softball fields, a soccer field, and two tennis courts. Near the soccer field is the Posse Grounds Recreation Room which is used for various recreation classes and just up the street from this park is the Sedona Community Pool.

Sedona's First Park!

Sunset Park

Sunset Park, Sedona's newest park, is located at 655 Sunset Drive in West Sedona. The park features several play areas including a play area for small children. You can bring your lunch and sit at one of the two ramadas and enjoy the surrounding beauty. 

The park offers a small quarter mile �Lollipop Trail� for the nature lover. If you are more athletically inclined, the park also has two tennis courts, first come-first serve basis, and a full-sized basketball court. Our large grassy field is just right for playing Frisbee or just soaking up the Arizona sun. 

Dogs are allowed in this park but must be on a leash, and extra care must be taken to clean up after your pet.
