  • The Christmas drive-thru light show is really worth the effort. The small lake and surroundings make a day-time visit also worth while.  more »

  • Very pretty park in the heart of Prescott Valley. Dock and bridge for fishing off of, as well as easy access around the lake for shore fishing. Ducks from all over love this place, so bring some bread, your kids will love it. Covered pic nic tables. Grass. Restroom. Hiking trails. During migration we see all kinds of bird species, they all like to stop at this riparian area. No fee for parking. Great backgrounds for taking special photos.
  • By far the nicest most peaceful, clean and friendly park I've visited in a very very long time. Thank you, keep up the great work it's very much appreciated,. :)
  • Hiking up Lynx Creek is fun until you realize you are on someone's claim or in someone's yard. Basically, there is private property all over the place that prevents the hiker from going more than about a mile. The fishing is easy due to the dock, the bridge and a picnic table close to the water. This park is more natural than any with an urban lake in Phoenix. It also has a historical mining display which is cool.
  • Wonderful... Families have picnics and fishing Sun shining and kids laughing. Something we All need more of... πŸ•β˜€οΈπŸŒžπŸ˜Š
  • We drive from Flagstaff to walk our Boston terriers. Usually on weekdays is quiet. Saturdays are a little too busy for us so we will keep coming on week days. We love this park!!
