Cedar Hills was recognized by the Arbor Day Foundation as a Tree City USA community for its commitment to urban forestry.
A Peaceful Place for Wildlife
Various forms of wildlife, including long-horn sheep, deer, and bald eagles, flourish in the mountains near Cedar Hills. In earlier years coyotes prowled along the bench, and wild cats, red foxes, and bears also lived in the area. Photo courtesy of Carlos Caceres
In 1939, as NBC ran a news story in the area of what is now Cedar Hills, the photographer was awestruck by the beauty of the bench and mountain backgrounds and exclaimed continually, “beautiful, beautiful!” Cedar Hills provides a panoramic view of Utah Valley and the surrounding mountain canyons.
Nestled at the mouth of American Fork Canyon on a mountain bench, the bedroom community of Cedar Hills provides a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains, Utah Lake, and Utah Valley. People find the quiet rural setting a relaxing place to raise their families.

The center also houses the Cedar Hills Golf Club pro shop. The center offers a breathtaking vista of Utah Valley and the surrounding mountains.

The city has received a number of calls expressing concern over the target shooting in the east bench area. The city is actively working with the U.S. Forest Service, American Fork Police, and property owners in the area on an extensive plan to eliminate the discharge of firearms within city limits.
No motorized vehicles are allowed on city property, i.e. parks, golf course, etc. ATVs and other vehicles on the lawns at Mesquite and other parks damage the grass and sprinklers. These activities severely damage the turf, and in some cases takes an entire season to restore. Please be considerate in this regard to help maintain and protect this valuable resource.
If you have beautiful and interesting photos of the city, its surrounding mountains and views, animal life, or fascinating pictures of the people, we would like to receive them for possible use on the city’s website and in city literature. Please e-mail JPG files to firstname.lastname@example.org.

There, people can take a book, exchange a book, or donate a book.
