Sedona, while beautiful and serene, is not always considered a place for children. If you are looking for some activities for the kids, have no fear, we have lots for you to do.
Slide Rock State Park is a fun adventure for both kids and parents. This swimming hole is a popular spot by visitors and locals alike. If the weather is too chilly and you aren’t brave enough to try the Slide into cold water, check out the orchards. Slide Rock State Park is a nature preserve and apple orchard. Take a walk around and see the exciting vegetation and wildlife that the park holds.
If you need a little more action, head over to Posse Grounds Park. Filled with activities, this park has sand volleyball courts, basketball courts, hiking trails, dog park, and skate park. The Jack Malmgren Skate Park was built and designed for skateboards, roller skates, inline skates and bmx bikes and has areas designated for beginners all the way up to advanced level skaters. Bleachers are nearby for your viewing pleasure.
Just south of Sedona is the Out of Africa Park in Camp Verde. This one of a kind wildlife park is worth the 30 minute drive. This interactive park allows you to feed the animals, experience exciting shows and give you the feel of being in the middle of Africa with the exotic animals. Be sure to check out their website for discounted tickets and don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes!!
