City Speak – Kell Palguta, Mayor, Town of Prescott Valley

Mayor Kell Palguta invites residents and visitors alike to enjoy what the community has to offer. “I am as excited as ever to welcome springtime back to our community, knowing that this time of the year Prescott Valley is going to entice everyone out to partake in our amazing weather as well as the awesome events that we have planned. Be sure to make Prescott Valley a destination this spring — I promise you will not regret it.”

The Town of Prescott Valley is looking forward to spring with anticipation of what we do best — get outdoors! Sports leagues, public pool opening, hiking, biking, fishing, viewing public art, and so much more are on the horizon.

Enjoy Our Community

The Mountain Valley Splash Pool opens May 29. The season will include swim lessons, recreation, lap and therapy swim and aqua aerobics. To register for lessons and water aerobics see www.pvaz.net/292/community-services and click on Aquatics. 

The Town of Prescott Valley has recently combined its Parks & Recreation, Library and Arts & Culture departments to better serve the public. Find a newly designed webpage at www.pvaz.net/292/community-services with icons for Classes and Programs, Arts & Culture, Special Events and more. 

If you’re a hiking, biking or walking enthusiast, the Community Services web page also includes an icon with information about local trails. Don’t forget the Town’s extensive multi-use path system, a surfaced network of paths that run west to east and south to north in Prescott Valley. These paths are also suitable for those who need accessibility for wheelchairs or other mobility devices. 

Be sure to check out the new QR-code-guided tours of the sculptures and art pieces that are part of the Prescott Valley Civic Center’s Art at the Center exhibit. The Town’s Arts & Culture division is installing plaques with Quick Response (QR) codes at each art piece. Art enthusiasts can scan the QR code and hear a recording with information about each art piece, including the artist, history and materials. These QR codes also will be installed near sculptures outside the Civic Center grounds, such as numerous parks. 

Prescott Valley and surrounding areas are treasured for bird lovers. Fain Lake and the Yavapai Lakes at Mountain Valley Park can yield some surprises for bird lovers, along with the varied species of ducks and birds during different seasons. Bring a pair of binoculars and a camera, because you never know what might drop in!
