Cedar Hills maintains five public parks for the recreation and enjoyment of its residents. The parks are supplied with water and electricity, including public restrooms. Each park has playground equipment and ample open space for activities.
Starting August 1st 2020, park curfew hours will be changed to 10:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m.
The City Council met on Tuesday, July 7th to review the park curfew ordinance in relation to the public disturbance ordinance. Our public disturbance ordinance (Section 5-2-2) prohibits loud noise, including noise related to sports activities and entertainment, in or adjacent to a residential zone between the hours of 10pm and 7am. All of our parks are either in or adjacent to a residential zone so in order to align park noise with the public disturbance ordinance and in an effort to have the same rules for public spaces as we do for individual private property owners, effective August 1st all parks will close at 10pm year-round.
Please read the Park Facility Rules and Usage before making a reservation.

Forest Creek Trail
The completion of the Forest Creek Trail, as well as a significant connection to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, was commemorated at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 25, 2004. We encourage bikers, joggers, and walkers to utilize the trails for invigorating exercise and breath-taking views of the surrounding area.
The new portion of the Forest Creek Trail now runs from the existing trail in Heritage Park, north to Redwood Drive, then east to Cottonwood Drive, and north again to the Highland City Trail, which runs by the Cedar Hills Golf Club. The new portion of the Bonneville Shoreline Trail connects near the mouth of American Fork Canyon at the Highland City Trail, travels south along Canyon Road, crosses under Canyon Road through an oversized tunnel and then continues just south of the LDS church located at Bayhill Drive and Canyon Road.

Many Utah Valley communities have constructed and are continuing to expand a system of non-motorized trails and pathways. These trails provide recreational opportunities and alternatives to automobile travel, preserve open space, and maintain access to public lands. Many trails are paved, multi-use paths suitable for walkers, joggers, roller-bladers and bicyclists. Others, like the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, are unpaved and more primitive, perfectly suited to mountain bikers, hikers and horses. All of these trails are open to the public and may be enjoyed year round.
*Be aware of rattlesnakes while using the trails in the spring ans summer months
Rattlesnakes are fully protected by Utah law; it’s ILLEGAL to harass or kill one. Rattlesnakes are an important part of Utah’s ecosystem, and they help keep the rodent population in check, which helps keep the diseases rodents carry in check too.
Most people who are bitten by rattlesnakes are bit while harassing a snake, toying with a snake, or trying to kill it. Like most animals, rattlesnakes fear humans and will do anything they can to avoid us. Respecting the snake, and giving it plenty of space, are the keys to avoiding problems.
You can get rattlesnake safety tips and tips to keep them out of your yard at the Wild Aware Utah website. Southwest Partners also provides rattlesnake safety information. A copy of the organization’s free “Living with Venomous Reptiles” brochure is available online.
