FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Coconino County Parks and Recreation is seeking public comment on the draft Fort Tuthill County Park Management Plan. The purpose of this Management Plan is to guide the department in its management of Fort Tuthill County Park into the future.
There will be two public meetings: November 14 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and November 17 from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. Both meetings will be located at the Fort Tuthill County Park Mess Hall, 2446 Fort Tuthill Loop in Flagstaff, or virtually through Microsoft Teams.

Fort Tuthill County Park is a 615-acre park, which borders the City of Flagstaff and the Coconino National Forest. It is the oldest of the county parks and holds a special place in the community. The park hosts events like the Coconino County Fair, as well as recreational programs and events. It also provides trails, which connect the park to the City of Flagstaff trails and surrounding U.S. Forest Service.
The draft management plan describes the park’s natural environment, cultural resources, public uses and facilities, and long-range planning. As the region grows, the role of Fort Tuthill County Park is evolving to meet the need for open spaces, events, programs, and diverse uses.
