Overview
Acker Park consists of approximately 80 acres of natural parkland near downtown Prescott with access from 421 S. Virginia St., Penn St./Eastwood, Autumn Breeze (in the Foothills subdivision) and S. Washington. The latter has limited parking and is best suited for walk-ins. The main 1-mile loop trail includes interpretive plant signs with nature quotes and children's art rotated in through out the year. There are 10 backless benches and 2 park benches that can be found along this trail to rest along the way or take in the scenic vista view that the trail offers. This is a very short trail in a city park. It is usually crowded but it is well suited to a quick after-work hike in the fall when the Sun is setting early.
