Because of COVID-19 we are trying to find places for the grandkids to run around before we moved into our rental home for a week. Pioneer Park/ Dixie rock was a great place to visit and let the kids run around. There is a Desert Garden right beside it that was fantastic. We went one evening for the sunset and then turned around and went back the next morning because some of the grandkids got up early and needed to run around.

We were pleasantly to surprised to find this great park right next to Red Hills Park where we stopped to have lunch. We had fun exploring "the Narrows" and wish we'd had more time to do some hiking. It looked like there were a lot of people exploring, repelling, and running radio controlled jeeps over the terrain.

What a gem in the middle of the city! There are trails, but most people just seemed to be climbing all over the rocks. My husband and I are in our 60's and found ourselves climbing on the rocks, too! It's like a giant playground for all ages. The climbing around can be as easy or as difficult as you want to make it. What a great place for kids to run off energy - and at no cost!

If you like to rock scramble or are with younger ones bursting with energy, maybe pull up here and negotiate the slick rock. The trails aren't necessarily marked. So watch where the other adventurers are going. You can perch yourself above the big Dixie painted signage (don't know when and if they'll take it down). But if you do, hike around below it first so you know where it is. Then try to find the crack between the rocks and the chiseled steps in the rock. There's an iron bridge constructed between the two big boulders, so you don't have to jump across. Some picnic tables around and one rest room station. Little shade. Weekends are busy but there's ample parking.

This park has interesting rock formations. The slot canyon is only for the thin and preferably short, but it is very cool. There are a couple of small arches, and all sorts of climbable rocks if you have the skill. For hikers there are lots of trails . There are picnic tables, a unique pavilion, and access to longer distance hikes. Plenty of parking is available at 2 or 3 lots but you can also hike up from town (use 200 east). Be sure to see the Red Hills garden at the right hand end of the park.

We visited briefly and did the Pioneer Park narrows, but it was clear there was SO much more to explore. Lots of short hikes and areas perfect for kids to explore and scramble around in the rocks. I wish we'd had more time, and I can't wait to go back!

There is a nice picnic area here and a short walk to a slot canyon. You can also climb higher to the top of one of the giant rocks. The biggest problem for me was the traffic noise as it is right on a busy main highway. It is also adjacent to Red Hills Desert Garden so you can visit both at the same time.

Great park to visit if you’re staying around the St. George/Washington area. I highly recommend trying the “crack”. It looks near impossible but me and my family (4 adults) all made it through. I suggest looking up at the sky if you’re feeling claustrophobic while doing it for it helped me get through. Even if you can’t make it through it’s a great place to spend some time exploring.

Nice free park with great views of St George and surrounding area. Located on a ridge north of the city it is easy to get to and park. Short scenic drive and hiking trails through beautiful red rock formations. Picnic areas too if needed. Worth driving through even if you do not have time to hike or picnic.

If your kids like your neighborhood playground equipment, they'll absolutely love Pioneer Park. I've never seen anything quite like it; It's one big climbing paradise for both kids and adults alike. Challenging enough but not intimidating for non-climbers; the tallest rocks were maybe 30 feet off the ground.

On the Saturday we were there, families and their dogs were all over the rocks. Plus, it's totally accessible by car. The driving loop takes you right up to the rocks. The only thing that kind of spoiled the day for us were the rock climbers who were blasting their boombox. Not that the music was offensive, but it just felt like dogs marking their territory and letting you know who was there first. The sound of kids squealing with delight would have been much more preferable.
