In 2001 the City built a free municipal parking lot in the Uptown area located on the corner of Schnebly Road and Peach Lane. Gardens for Humanity constructed the Sedona Schnebly Memorial Garden at this site which was the last home site of T.C. and Sedona Schnebly (Sedona’s namesake). Gardens for Humanity is also responsible for rescuing the irises originally planted by Sedona Schnebly. Many children from the Sedona-Oak Creek School District created tiles that are now mounted on the reconstructed homestead and gardens.
This parking lot was so attractive when it was first built that is was awarded First Place by the Arizona Main Street Program for Best Public Improvement in 2002. In 2003, the garden was honored by receiving the Arizona Main Street Award at the Governor’s Rural Development Conference in the category of Best Public/Private Partnership.
This parking lot and Memorial Garden is maintained by the City of Sedona maintenance staff.
Hours of Lot: 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. All vehicles must exit by 10:00 p.m.
