What Neighbors Are Saying About Living in Doney Park:
“My favorite thing about Doney park is the community, we are one big family that steps up if someone needs help, watches out for our neighbors, cheers each other on, we have our own parades, events, and trunk or treats. We have awesome sunsets too.”
“Every August I would sleep on my patio with my glasses on and wake up during the night to watch the persades meteor shower. Doney park wind was definitely tough, but I have wonderful memories living there.“
“Doney has not changed its attitude towards others. Country living as it was 40+ years ago. I enjoy owning land, it’s like a pioneer. It’s the atmosphere. You help your neighbors, they help you but you don’t intrude!” -John Girvin (property owner)
“Growing up out here we knew all of our neighbors. They would tell your parents you got in trouble before you could, or they covered for you and sent you home. We raised our kids out here to have the small-town feel but be close enough to town to still have a “city” life. My favorite reason to live out here is you may not know the neighbors but they will be there for you at the drop of hat. We still have each other’s back!” -Salyna Girvin
“I mostly love the open space and not being right on top other people. Friendly neighbors that enjoy their privacy as well. I love to sit on my deck in the evening and just listen to the chickens, horses, donkeys, dogs, birds, cows etc of Doney Park. I am always in awe when I’m sitting outside on my deck and have a herd of elk come within touching distance to graze. I was in my spa one morning watching the sun rise with my coffee when a herd of elk came thundering over the hill behind us! As Flagstaff grows I am happier by the year to live in Doney Park, I have all the beauty of living in a country setting but only a 10 minute drive to town. I’m always most happy to be out of Flagstaff traffic.”
“I love the sense of community!”
“It’s a quiet neighborhood and the neighbors have been welcoming & friendly. We love being close to Flagstaff and all it has to offer but are far enough away to enjoy the rural feel of the area. We have great views of Mount Elden and the San Francisco Peaks and love the proximity to Sunset Crater and the Cinder Hills OHV area, which can be accessed through the east end of the neighborhood.”
“It’s quiet with larger pieces of land, lots of room to spread out, lots of animal sounds- roosters, donkeys, prairie dogs, dogs, horses, sheep, goats, birds and amazing views!
We are a good distance from our neighbors and the whole neighborhood is peaceful.”

The History of Doney Park
A farming community originally, Doney Park and the Timberline area east of Flagstaff had the largest field of pinto beans in the county. The fields were dependent on summer monsoons and snowmelt. The 1950s brought an end to Flagstaff’s farming history, but Doney Park has kept its ranching roots, becoming an area known for large acred lots and horses farms.
If Doney Park Was A Netflix Series, It Would Be….
It would be Pluto: The Last Frontier. If you are not aware, on February 18, 1930, Pluto was discovered in the city of Flagstaff. Flagstaff is the world’s first International Dark Sky Place, which basically means that the skys of Flagstaff are fantastic for stargazing and Doney Park is just the place to do so. Doney Park’s multi-acre parcels allow for less light pollution and most of the area is not as heavily treed as other areas of Flagstaff.
If Doney Park was a Band, it Would Be….
The Highway Men. All of those amazing old-time country singers would love to sing about the amazing mountain views and clean air!
If Doney Park Was An Actor It Would Be…
Tommy Lee Jones, down to earth and hard-working. Often is noted for playing a supporting role but has the talent to star in an epic western with expansive mountain views & room for animals or close enough to downtown to get to your Space Cowboy job at Lowell Observatory in 20 minutes.

"I have worked with many real estate brokers and agents on several real estate transact ions over the years and can say with confidence that Arin is the best agent. Arin has the qualities that make her an extremely successful and effective broker. I can’t say enough about her professionalism and knowledge within the industry. She has high integrity and is very conscientious and tenacious, always keeping the client’s best interests in mind. Our real estate sale was extremely complicated due to the advanced ages of my Uncle and Aunt. Her empathy and focus was instrumental in executing the transfer of ownership. One of the qualities I respected the most was her willingness to roll up her sleeves and get the job done."

Through her network, we were able to get a first opportunity and capitalize on an amazing house with forest access. Jessica coached us every step of the way from making an offer, getting under contract, navigating inspections and then closing. She had professionals at her fingertips for every need that arose."

He walked us around a bunch of properties virtually before we arrived in town, and then helped us get a fantastic home that we love (not an easy task in this insane market). And what's more, he's been there every step of the way to help us find local handymen, remodelers, etc. He knows pretty much everyone in Flagstaff, and he's more than happy to help out. Also, to boot, he's one of the nicest people we've ever met. Can't recommend him and his agency highly enough."
