Park Reservations

 

The Logan Parks and Recreation Department reserves areas for family reunions, business parties, church parties, and other activities.

Reservations can be made year round up to 12 months in advance, at the Logan Community Recreation Center, 195 South 100 West. Reservations can be made for April 15 through October 15. Reservations may be made in person, by mail with a check, over the phone or online using a Visa or MasterCard. Reservations should be made at least five (5) business days in advance. Reservation time slots are 9:00 am-3:00 pm or 3:30 pm-dusk.

The fee to reserve an area is $34 and is due at the time the reservation is made (Willow West Rotary Pavilion, Willow Park Center Stage, and Bridger Park areas are $48). A two (2) week notice is required in order to receive a refund for a cancellation. A $5.00 fee is charged for all refunds. Refunds will not be given due to inclement weather. Rescheduling based on availability is provided without an additional fee and must be arranged within 30 days of the original reservation date.

All trash must be bagged and placed in trash receptacles. User will be billed for additional fees if area is left unsatisfactorily. Every reasonable effort is made to make sure the area is cleaned prior to your reservation, however, the reservation fee guarantees only that the area is available for your event. For any urgent situation regarding your reservation, park staff can be contacted 24 hours a day by calling (435) 716-9890.


Electrical outlets are available at select pavilions. Power capabilities are 10 amps per outlet. Please do not add cords or splitters to the outlet as overloads and loss of power can occur. If Parks staff is called to reset breakers, a call-out fee of $30 will be charged.


Volleyball pits can be rented separately or in combination with a park reservation for an additional $10.


Reunion Kits (softball, bat, volleyball, bounce ball, Frisbee, football, basketball, soccer ball) are available for rent at the Recreation Center.

Enhance Our Local Environment – Donate to the Logan City Living Tree Program


Did you know?

  • Trees renew our air supply by absorbing carbon dioxide and producing oxygen.
  • One large tree can provide a day's supply of oxygen for up to four people.
  • A tree can absorb as much as 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year and can sequester 1 ton of carbon dioxide by the time it reaches 40 years old
  • Trees lower air temperature by evaporating water in their leaves
  • Tree roots stabilize soil and prevent erosion
  • Trees improve water quality by slowing and filtering rain water, as well as protecting aquifers and watersheds
  • Trees provide shelter and food for wildlife such as birds, squirrels, and bugs
  • Trees in the landscape relax us, lower heart rates, reduce stress, and cool us off

The Living Tree Donation is a simple way for anyone to give a tax-deductible cash donation and in exchange a 2-inch diameter tree will be planted in a Logan City park or in other City-owned property where trees are needed. Donations start at $300 per tree. Trees will be ordered by the Logan City Forester to ensure it is healthy and appropriate for its surroundings. The City Forester will also work with you on location and tree type. Once planted the tree and location will be digitally archived in the City’s tree inventory. Trees purchased through the Living Tree Program may be planted by volunteers with provided instruction or by City crews. Trees will be planted based on locations identified by the City.

Urban Trail Guide

trail The City of Logan welcomes you to explore the Logan City Urban Trail System.


An Urban Trail is a city-wide network of non-motorized, shared-use pathways that are used by bicyclists, walkers, hikers, runners, and other users for both recreation and transportation.


Existing trails are paved, either in concrete or asphalt and are a cost effective use of existing sidewalks.


Trails are generally five or ten feet in width.


Trails offer an incredibly diverse range of experiences; some trails are located along busy streets, while others traverse beautiful natural places all within the urban area.


The system connects neighborhoods, shopping, schools, parks, open space, and places of employment.
