Thorpe Park in Flagstaff

We went to Flagstaff for the weekend, and thought we’d share some of our favorite places

Are you looking for a great park for kids in Flagstaff? May we suggest Thorpe Park located on the west side of town. It’s a fantastic regional park with lots of cool play areas for all ages, swings, four lighted tennis courts (and two others that are unlit), and much more!

We were visiting Flagstaff for the weekend, and our two kids (ages 1 and 4) wanted to run around. We found Thorpe Park by looking for parks on the Yelp app on my phone.

Thorpe Park has lots of swings for toddlers and children. We had a blast on them. They also have two play areas. There’s a smaller one for toddlers and 2 year olds, and a bigger play area for ages 3+. Our four year old daughter loved this one, and went down the tunnel slides numerous times.

We arrived on a perfectly cool 65 degree day in October. They had lots of green grass that is perfectly manicured. There were even some nice fall leaves falling and we captured some fun autumn pictures of the kids.

There’s a jungle gym designed to look like a fire truck. Our daughter had a lot of fun sliding down the pole. The back side of the park has a little pine forest and it provides shade for the bouncy toys.

We’ll definitely be back! We loved this park, and so did our children.

We live in Scottsdale, AZ and have two children, ages 7 and 3. They are full of energy, and so we're always looking for new things to do! That's why we made this web site, to share them with you.
