Sedona Posse Grounds Joins Star Park Network

Sedona AZ (April 30, 2011) The City of Sedona Department of Parks and Recreation is pleased to announce that Posse Grounds is a new member of Star Park in the Global Star Park Network. Just as Sedona has designated areas for recreation, sports, and the enjoyment of nature, Posse Grounds Park has been chosen as an area where the starry sky can be enjoyed.

Parks in the Global Star Park Network play an important role in monitoring the sky quality. The goal of a Star Park is to protect the night sky, give access to starlight and is a place where lighting practices permit the best public viewing of the night sky within the area.

The Global Star Park Network provides information on sky quality for travelers who may want to visit a Star Park and plan their trip accordingly. For more information on Star Park and its mission, visit www.onestar-awb.org.

The City of Sedona thanks the Astronomers of the Verde Valley for its association with astronomy activities at Posse Grounds Park.  To contact the Astronomers of the Verde Valley, call 928-649-0485 or visit www.astroverde.org.

Posse Grounds Park is located at 525 Posse Ground Road in west Sedona, Arizona. For more information, contact Sedona Parks and Recreation at 928-282-7098 or at www.SedonaAz.gov/Parks.
