    The Richard Marcusen Sculpture Garden at Yavapai College is adjacent to the YC Performing Arts Center. With meandering walks, the four-acre park enhances a variety of beautiful trees and shrubs. It provides a graceful setting for study, quiet contemplation and, as an extension of the Center, is a delightful area for outdoor events.

College Police

The primary role of the Yavapai College Police Department is to provide assistance and protection of people on all campuses, protection of their property and protection of College property within the District. As a full service college police department, the department is staffed by highly trained officers who are AZPOST certified. They have the same responsibilities and authority as municipal, county or state law enforcement agencies.

Nature Trail

This 1.5 mile, non-motorized trail on the Prescott Campus was built to preserve our natural areas, provide recreational opportunities, and encourage biological, and cultural opportunities for all. It is an official Arizona State Trail, carefully designed and built to be natural and sustainable with the help of a Heritage Fund Grant and local contributors.
