Parks, Trails and Recreation

Parks, Trails and Recreation

One of the things that makes Woodland Hills such a great place is our unique quality of life.  Beyond the natural beauty of our surroundings, the city supports one of the state’s most picturesque parks and a variety of family-friendly recreational activities.  We also support a growing trail system.  In partnership with the mayor and city council, the Woodland Hills Parks, Trails, and Recreation Committee oversees these unique public resources and recreational activities.

City Park

The Meadows Park is a 10 acre public area at the top of the city that overlooks Utah Lake and the Utah Valley.  A paved path rings the park and provides an excellent place to exercise. The park includes approximately 5 acres of wooded land and a large grassy field.  A covered pavilion with eight tables is available for public use and can be reserved (for a fee) through the city recorder’s office.  No fires of any kind for cooking are allowed in the park and dogs must be leashed.  No public restrooms are available.

Woodland Hills Avalanche Soccer Club

The city sponsors the Woodland Hills Avalanche Youth Soccer Club, a recreational soccer club for youth grades K through 8.  All children with an interest in soccer are invited to participate.  We organize teams for spring and fall league play.  Our goal is to provide a positive environment for children in the community where they can learn the value of teamwork, physical fitness, and sportsmanship all through the beautiful game of soccer.  Volunteer coaches are always welcome.  For more information, contact Shannon Erickson.

Annual Events

We also organize or help support several community-building events throughout the year.  These include our Annual Town Clean-Up and Arbor Day Celebration in May, Woodland Hills Days in September, Trunk-or-Treat at the Park in October, and the Christmas Tree Lighting in December. With the completion of our new Community Center, we plan to sponsor several new activities that can be housed indoors in this wonderful public building.

For more information about any of these events or venues, contact a member of the Parks, Trails, and Recreation Committee.  Current members include: Byron Adams, Lyn Bennett, Shannon Erickson, Jerry Johnson (City Council), and Renee Van Buren.
