Big Park is the name given by the pioneers for the large open area of ranches in Yavapai County, Arizona. It was founded in the early 1800‘s and today is otherwise known as Village of Oak Creek or VOC. When it was formed, there were nothing but farms and ranches scattered about the area. But the area has slowly transformed over the last 50 years into a sleepy bedroom community of Sedona with golf resorts and 3 golf courses with the red rocks of Castle, Bell and Courthouse Butte as the background. It is about seven miles away from the main area of Sedona 86336, and has it's own post office designated Sedona 86351.
