Buffalo Park stands at the northern end of Flagstaff. It is perhaps the largest park in Flagstaff, and is a popular destination for locals. It has an extensive running and walking trail system that are used by many joggers. It is also part of the cities’ water system, with a major water line coming down from the mountains. Historically, Buffalo Park was a privately owned “Wild West” style theme park with stage coach rides, roaming buffalo (bison) and other traditional themes. Unfortunately, the park was unsuccessful, and perhaps the best known event involving the original park was when the buffalo herd got loose and wandered into the city. Eventually, the city bought the land and opened the park. In many ways Buffalo Park is a hidden gem of Northern Arizona.
