Thorpe Park Directions
Thorpe Park is a nice developed park at the base of Observatory Mesa just west of downtown Flagstaff. The park includes tennis courts, softball fields, and a 27-hole disc golf course. It is also the gateway to the Flagstaff Urban Trail System (FUTS), with trails leading up Observatory Mesa and into Lowell Observatory, City of Flagstaff, and Coconino National Forest lands beyond. We hope you're able to join us for our events that start at Thorpe Park.
