Prescott's Community Nature Center

Outdoor learning & exploration for all.

A Little Story

Did you know Prescott's Community Nature Center was once part of the Prescott Unified School District? In 1974, the district established this beautiful 18 acre space to enhance outdoor learning for all students & community members. In 2006, the City of Prescott purchased the Community Nature Center as an Open Space Preserve. With over 1.5 miles of trails through centuries old prairies, towering granite boulders, and up to mountain vistas, Prescott's Community Nature Center is a very special place.

Driven by the shared goals of the City of Prescott's Recreation Services and Open Space, the Community Nature Center provides the perfect place for visitors of all ages and recreational abilities to experience the benefits of our great outdoors.
