Safe, relaxing, and beautiful. In Town Square Park your family will find a splash pad, a lazy river, and many other water features that you and the younger ones will enjoy. In the heart of St. George’s historic district, this park has spacious greenery and lots of walkways with ample space for children to play and adults to breathe easily. The park features water attractions such as several fountains to help freshen up from the summer heat, and as an added bonus, Town Square Park offers free Wi-Fi. Bonus!

2. Paddle Sports

One of the many fun things to do in St George in summer is to go to Sand Hollow Park for paddle sports like boating, water skiing, wave running, and obviously paddleboarding. All the scenic places on such a beautiful national park make a great backdrop that would motivate even the most sedentary of people to at least splash around a little bit.

3. Visiting St. George Children’s Museum

One of the coolest places to visit in Southern Utah, not just to cool off with some A/C but to learn something while you’re there. This museum has a total of 12 exhibitions that are tailored towards both children and adults.
