Wonderful Park with a Variety of Options
Jun 2021
While staying in Flagstaff on vacation, we wanted to visit a park so the kids could run around and play for a bit. Bushmaster Park was a wonderful option for what we wanted. There are two large playground areas; one being older and in a shady grove and trees and the other being a newer and more modern area out in the open. While it didn't really pertain to our visit, the park also had a skate park, tennis and basketball courts, and even a dog park. Park also had some water fountains and restrooms as well. Very welcoming place, which is also very family friendly,

There were a few minor downsides to our visit to Bushmaster Park, though. First and foremost, while the park is fairly well maintained, there were some spots in need of repair or at least refurbishing. Some of the concrete sections are showing signs of aging and wear, and some of the playground equipment could use a touch up. Secondly, some part of the park were just kinda dirty. In particular, there was a fair amount of litter scattered around the areas as well as graffiti spray painted on building or playground equipment.

Still an overall beautiful park with a lot of options available. Would highly recommend to others, especially those with kids and/or dogs.

A hidden gem
Sep 2019
We found this park by accident and it has something to appeal to every age. From the 2-5 play areas, to skateboard area, tennis or pickle ball courts, and innovative play areas for the older kids, this park has it all. There are many pavilions with tables and grills for picnics. Lots of grass and walking paths also.

One side of the park has one of the newer, really great, all-inclusive (disabilities friendly) playgrounds. We went to this park specifically for that reason while visiting Flagstaff (first time...) from out of state. We noticed many men (homeless? not clear) spread out, sitting under the two picnic gazebos, which you must pass to get to the playground and the dog park. The restrooms are also right in-between.
When we took our kindergartener to the bathroom on the way out, a woman approached us asking for a phone because someone had just slashed her neck/throat & she was bleeding profusely. While administering first aid and talking to 911 dispatch, we learned it was associated with a meth dealer... Good news is the first officer on sight was within a few minutes. All the single men hanging around had suddenly disappeared. The only person who came to help after it was a clear emergency was a local who said there had been another incident not long ago.
This was all in daylight, on Labor Day, at about 4pm.

A Children's Delight!
Jun 2019 • Family
Whenever we visit Flagstaff, one of the first attractions the grandchildren request is Bushmaster Park. It is simply one of the nicest municipal parks I have ever experienced. There are plenty of first-class rides for the children , as well as pavilions for family picnics and get-togethers. Lovely environment for family activities. Highly Recommended!

Too Many Cracks for Skate Boarding
Mar 2019
Location seemed alright during the day. Feedback from our pre teen skate boarder was that there were too many cracks to be able to enjoy a decent ride at the skate park. Rest of the park seemed decent with a dog run and multiple play gyms for the little ones.

Fun!

The grand kids enjoy going to this park. There's plenty of fun to be had here. You can have a picnic and explore the different playgrounds for the kids. This park is in close proximity to homes in the area.

Fantastic playground
Feb 2019 • Family
We were visiting Flagstaff from Phoenix. There had been some snow recently when we visited. We used the opportunity to play in the snow and play at the park. The playground is amazing. Lots to climb and do that isn’t usually available at a standard park. There are two zip lines. One is a rope with a circular disc to sit or stand on as you swing across. The other is a seat with over the shoulder metal harness to allow people too young or unable to hold on and position themselves safely on the rope to zip line securely. My two year old who had neither the strength or safety awareness to zipline traditionally, was able to enjoy the experience in the harnessed seat.

There is also a merry go round, wheel chair accessible rocking boat, slides, and lots of climbing challenges.

A dog park, ramadas, and second playground are also available but we did not visit them, although we could see them. There is also a restroom by the parking lot.

The city of Flagstaff has done a great job improving this beautiful park in the center of east Flagstaff The problem are the transients that also use the park. Do not go after dark. It is spooky

Home to the Barkmaster Off-leash Dog Park
Jun 2018 • Solo
Bushmaster is a nice, very wooded general purpose park. In addition to several nice picnic areas, it also has a playground area and a skateboard park. We were traveling with our dog, so our purpose for visiting was to check out Barkmaster Off-leash Dog Park. Barkmaster is contained within Bushmaster Park. It is located in the south-east section of the park.

Barkmaster is nice & shady, though it also has some open areas. There is some dog agility / exercise equipment and lots of balls to play with. Not much in the way of seating for humans, we wished we had brought some folding chairs.

We like this better than the Thorpe Off-leash Dog Park. Barkmaster is a lot easier to get to if you are staying on the east side of Flagstaff.

Fun little park!
Jan 2018 • Friends
My brother and I stayed in Flagstaff for just one night. The morning of our departure brought us some snow, so we walked to Bushmaster Park, which is less than a half mile walk from the Days Inn & Suites where we had spent the night.

Bushmaster Park is an excellent place to run around and be kids again! There are some monkey bars and other things to climb on, as well as plenty of trees that make it a wonderful spot for the young at heart!

Have fun!
