Vernal has a really fun community park with an amazing playground, a walking track, pavilions, and more. We had a wonderful picnic and enjoyed a few hours playing at Ashley Valley Community Park in Vernal.
The playground at Ashley Valley Community Park is large and has a lot of fun places to play. There is a huge climbing tower, as well as a climbing wall. There are a few different play sections with monkey bars, slides, and places to explore. The playground also has swings and a teeter toter. We also had fun playing on the spinny toys at this park.
There is a smaller toddler playground at the park, too. Even the toddler playground has a lot to do with monkey bars, slides, and smaller climbing places. This is a great spot if you don’t want to worry about your kids on the larger climbing places.
Another highlight at Ashley Valley Community Park is the original Vernal Tabernacle Tower. When the tabernacle was turned into the Vernal LDS temple, they placed the original top of the tabernacle in the park. There is an informational sign and you are allowed to walk inside of it. We loved that there was a little bit of history right in the park.
Across the street from the park there is a walking path. The walking path has some beautiful bridges and a small pavilion. There is also a small pond and stream that runs through this area of the path. We didn’t use the path for exercise, but we enjoyed walking around the little pond for the scenery.
Ashley Valley Community Park has lots of other amenities that make it a great place to spend the day. There is a large pavilion where we ate our lunch. This park also has restrooms and a lot of grass for playing tag or soccer. There are also baseball fields and basketball courts.
Ashley Valley Community Park is a fun place to spend half a day. If you find yourselves in Vernal, make sure to schedule a few hours to play at the park. We have a list of lots of fun things to do in the Vernal area.
