Whenever we are in St. George we always stop at Pioneer Park. It’s the perfect place for kids to burn off some energy and have the freedom to explore wherever they want to go. There is a really well maintained botanical garden at the entrance (and as an added bonus: it is decorated with lights during the holidays).
According to my children, though, the really fun part of Pioneer Park is “The Crack”. It’s a small slot canyon that’s perfect for kids, especially if you’re new to canyoneering and want to see if that is something your family will enjoy doing. It’s pretty tight and dark in places, but each of my kids (ages 2-9) go through it over and over again. I am about 130 pounds and I can fit through it (with a couple moments of panic here and there). My husband is about 190 pounds and cannot fit!
You can explore an old pioneer home with an hearth that’s cool.
