at the nature center kiosk each month or on-line.
Description: The Community Nature Center property is owned by the City of Prescott and is
located at 1980 Williamson Valley Road. The city acquired this site several years ago using
taxpayer-funded Open Space sales tax revenue. This 18-acre site is accessed by the same road
that is used to get to Granite Mountain Middle School.
The property is managed by the City of Prescott Parks and Recreation Department and is open to
the public every day. The property is characterized by pinyons, junipers, live scrub oak and large
granite boulders. It is a delightful place to hike and explore, and it is so close to home.
The City's Community Nature Center has a newly completed trail network of about 1.5 miles of
trails that meander within the fenced boundary of the property.
It is located near Granite Mountain Middle School and features a replica of a log cabin
(constructed in 1976 by Youth Conservation Corps) where every attempt was made to use
similar construction techniques as in pioneer days. This log cabin features the traditional
chinking between logs, and rock fireplace.
