provo parksProvo City Parks and Recreation has many fantastic parks all around the city. Check out Kiwanis Park or have a bonfire in Provo Canyon at one of the many parks there. Whether you are looking to play sports, go running or jogging, let the kids monkey around on the playground, or have a picnic, chances are there is a great park just around the corner. If you’re wanting to host a party, most of the parks have well maintained restrooms and covered pavilions. Even if there is a great Provo park just around the corner though, why not take advantage of the other great parks around the city too?
