People will be able to take advantage of the free tours and presentations given at the garden or settle on wandering the paths that crisscross the garden’s surface. Along the way, some may notice imprints resembling tiny dinosaur tracks in the concrete sections of the path. When followed, they lead to spots along the path that display re-creations of dinosaur tracks and swim tracks that were discovered during the site’s construction. Interpretive signs will be near the tracks, providing information.

The 11 acre park is named in honor of the Mathis Family who donated farm land to the City of St. George. Although the fishing pond and park property were lost in the 2005 flood the park was re-built in 2008 with a number of added features and upgrades. The park amenities include a covered pavilion with picnic tables and barbecues, restroom facilities, loop walking trail, three separate grass areas, and a shaded children’s playground. Future improvements include another covered pavilion, additional playground equipment, and a splash pad. 120 trees from our tree farm have recently been planted in the grass areas and along the trail.
Kanarra Creek Trail – commonly referred to as Kanarraville Falls – is a very rewarding hike that takes you up a canyon just east of the town of Kanarraville, UT. This is a water hike and cannot be completed without getting wet. The trail crosses Kanarra Creek many times and eventually enters a slot canyon where you have no choice to to enter the 3-8 inches of water so you can see the falls. The trail is lush with trees, plants, reeds – lots of green. Not really suitable for small children unless you plan to carry them alot of the way. Beautiful hike – definitely a great place to get out of the St George heat in the summer time! Kanarra Creek Trail – Kanarraville Falls Source:Google maps

Sienna Hills Park w/Pavilion and Playground The design and construction of the Sienna Hills community park has enormous benefits to the community. SITLA and Washington City worked closely together to design this majestic park providing maximum access and enjoyment to its citizens. Many features were incorporated to add to the comfort and safety of those who use the facility. Enormous attention was paid to seamlessly integrate the trail into the landscape and provide access to the greater trail system of the city. An extra large playground with above average wood chip depth was installed for greater safety of the children who use it. Rubber matting was installed in the grass surface on the north end of the park to promote a community-gathering place. Spalsh Pad The greatest feature at Sienna Hills Park is the exterior splash pad. It contains interactive play structures and water features for children. The water is never wasted, but it is filtered and recycled and then used again for fun and “cool” enjoyment for children of all ages throughout out the hot summer months. This park is a beautiful oasis in the desert. (Source: http://washingtoncity.org/recreation/parks/SiennaHillsPark)

This historic location was the original water source for the settlers of the valley and offers natural wonders found nowhere else in Utah. Botanists have discovered plants that grow only in this unique microclimate protected by canyon walls from harsh winds and insulated by lush plant life. Water percolating from the surrounding red cliffs creates emergent natural springs which fill the pond and supply the water for the historic Waterwalk down Main Street. The park is easily enjoyed by walking the gravel path under the shade of a variety of trees. At the top of the park the trail reaches a small amphitheater and more adventurous hikers can continue up the canyon into the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve trail system.

The Narrows in Zion | 1-435-772-3256
The Narrows is the narrowest section of Zion Canyon. This gorge, with walls a thousand feet tall and the river sometimes just twenty to thirty feet wide, is one of the most popular areas in Zion National Park. You can see The Narrows by hiking along the paved, wheelchair accessible Riverside Walk for one mile from the Temple of Sinawava. If you wish to see more, you will be walking in the Virgin River. This can involve wading upstream for just a few minutes or it can be an all day hike. Source: http://www.nps.gov/zion/planyourvisit/thenarrows.htm
