Jacob Hamblin Park in Kanab

On a recent trip to Kanab we found ourselves in need of a break from a busy trip to Zion. We got lucky and found a beautiful local park called Jacob Hamblin Park, which was just right for a picnic and some play time for our kids.

We love little park in Kanab.

Picnic Areas

Jacob Hamblin Park is very large and has a lot of green space. There is some shade next to the large trees, and a sizable pavilion that would accommodate a lot of people (probably at least 50). There are also picnic tables spread throughout the park underneath their own little shade coverings. This park has plenty of trees for shade.

The picnic tables have a lot of shade and there is one large pavilion.


While Mom made lunch, Dad chased the kids around the play area, which featured slides, swings, climbing walls, bridges, and all the usual park stuff. The playground was fun for kids of all ages and we like that it has a big shade sail over the top to keep the equipment from getting too hot.

The playground was nice and clean. Kids of all ages can enjoy it!

Splash Pad

Jacob Hambln Park also has a small splash pad, which is a great way to cool off in the summer. The splash pad has a few sprayers that alternate being on and off. There is a button to turn the water on if you decide to splash at the splash pad.

We weren’t prepared to get wet, but this splash pad would be really fun, especially for young kids.

In the middle of the park there was also a tall working wind vane. We watched as it swung around each time the wind shifted, with its many blades whirring. This park has nice restrooms and is located next to some basketball courts, a baseball field, and a skate park.

The wind vane was moving all over the place. It was fun to watch.

If you come to Kanab from Zion, as you come into town you will go around a huge curve to the left and pass the white horse for the Little Hollywood Movie Museum. Keep following this road (Center St) through town and just before it takes a huge curve to the right, turn left onto 100 E. The park is 5 blocks up on this road.
