Prescott Valley has so many reasons why we love to live here. I consider them our community “Points of Pride” and while I could write pages naming them all, here are a few of my top “Prescott Valley Points of Pride.”
The Flags along Highway 69
Each major holiday, patriotic days and special days recognizing our armed services, flags are placed along Highway 69. The American Legion Post No. 108 puts the flags up on the south side of the highway, and VFW Post No. 10227 handles the north side.
We salute you and thank you for your service and reminding us to keep patriotism in our hearts.
Mountain Valley Park
Mountain Valley Park, 8600 E. Nace, is on 69 glorious acres in the middle of Prescott Valley. Any day of the week there is activity on ballfields, soccer fields, skate and dog parks.
The lakes, with their water features, sit on 12 acres surrounded by an all-accessible walking path, over 100 trees, and they are home to a variety of waterfowl, fish and other wildlife. The two lakes have been added to the Arizona Game and Fish Community Fishing Program. A valid fishing license is required for those over the age of 10.
Prescott Valley Healing Fields
In 2012, Prescott Valley held its first Healing Fields at the Prescott Valley Civic Center to honor those lost Sept. 11, 2001. Every year since, 2,977 flags representing and honoring those who died that day — along with 19 Granite Mountain Hotshot Flags representing the firefighters who perished on June 30, 2013 — are installed by volunteers and on view for Patriot Week 24/7.
The Healing Fields will be on display Sept. 8-15. For more information visit www.healingfieldpv.com.
IFL 2022 Champions NAZ Wranglers
This professional indoor football team first kicked off in the Findlay Toyota Center in 2021. The team became part of our community and brought exciting game action, a wonderful and fun mascot named Whiskey and a dance team called the Mustangs.
In 2022, only their second year, the NAZ Wrangler won the IFL Championship. Tickets are now on sale at www.nazwranglers.com.
