Sunnyside Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Arguably, any part of Flagstaff could be considered “sunny side,” with the city enjoying roughly 288 days of sunshine per year, but this particular reference belongs to the Sunnyside neighborhood just east of the downtown area and north of U.S. Highways 89 and 180 and Interstate 40. The zip code for this Coconino County community is 86004.
A variety of amenities can be found near Sunnyside, including the Ponderosa Recreation Center, Bushmaster Park, Midtown Shopping Center, and the Flagstaff Aquaplex. Just west of Sunnyside is the heart of downtown Flagstaff. Residents come here to shop and dine at the Flagstaff Plaza Shopping Center, and the downtown Flagstaff Medical Center constitutes a convenient health care option and major area employer.
The downtown area’s largest park is Thorpe Park. This popular regional park on North Thorpe Road offers many opportunities for outdoor recreation. Among the more unique amenities offered here are a dog park and disc golf course. Other amenities and facilities include tennis and racquetball courts, baseball and soccer fields, a basketball court, playgrounds, and picnic areas.
Another major attraction in downtown Flagstaff is the Northern Arizona University campus. This university dates back to 1899 and is situated on a beautiful, sprawling city campus. It serves more than 23,600 undergraduate and graduate students and offers 95 undergraduate programs and 57 master’s and doctoral programs.
As part of Flagstaff, Sunnyside and its residents enjoy the conveniences of city living and the beauty of a rural community. This city is purposely kept largely undeveloped, surrounded by mountains and forestland, with scenic views and easy access to nature.
