We found a new amazing park yesterday. Heritage Park in Cedar Hills has a lot of fun things to do. First of all, there are huge shady trees. I love that! So many parks have no shade, but this park had plenty of great places to throw down a blanket in the shade.
The playground was a little small, but my boys had fun on it for awhile. There was a huge pavilion which would be nice for a family lunch, or even party.
The best part was a small creek running through the park. It was about ankle deep on my 4 year-old and safe enough to play in. The water was moving, so you could lose a toy downstream, but it wasn’t fast enough to worry about. It was also freezing, but that didn’t stop my adventurous boys from playing in the creek for about an hour. The bottom of the creek is lined with rocks, so there was plenty of rock throwing. One of our friends had brought some water guns which provided lots of entertainment, and I made a note to take some next time we went. We will definitely visit this park again with water guns and swimsuits! Make sure to keep an eye on your kids even in this shallow water.
Heritage Park is located at 4425 W. Cedar Hills Drive in Cedar Hills. If you can find Lone Peak High, then you can find this park. Take North County Blvd (aka 1100 North in American Fork or 2000 W in Pleasant Grove or 4800 W in Highland) north toward Highland/Alpine or if you are coming from the Alpine Highway, head south. Head east on Cedar Hills Drive (you’ll see a Wal-Mart). The park is about 1/2 mile on your right.

We love love this park for the creek and the shade. My two girls love splash pads but for some reason this simple creek keeps their attention much longer, and it’s rarely busy. Have you ever followed the trail that goes through it across the road? It winds through some woods along the creek and is nice and cool because there is so much shade. I think it ultimately meets up with a trail to American Fork Canyon.
