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.
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
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.
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.
