Unlimited Play CenterUnlimited Play Center Project

Provo is a wonderful place to live with a diverse variety of recreational opportunities, but Provo is still missing something important. The Parks and Recreation Department has worked with a committee of residents and experts to discuss how to extend recreational opportunities to all children in the community. The solution was to create a space that everyone can enjoy, regardless of physical abilities, bringing our community even closer together. 

Adjacent to the Provo Recreation Center on 500 North, an Unlimited Play Center has been designed to meet these community needs. This will be the first playground of its type in Provo and will be the largest playground in the city. The majority of this project is funded by Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) and the Recreation Arts and Parks (RAP) tax.

Construction of this new play center is anticipated to begin July 2019 with an opening date to be announced during construction. This unique play center will be an important inclusion in Provo and it's park system because everyone needs a place to play

RAP Provo River Parkway Trail Project

Construction of the south phase of the trail project from Columbia Lane to west of Geneva Road is nearing completion.  It is anticipated that the section of the trail between Independence Avenue and I-15 will be completed Fall 2019.  It is also anticipated that the lighting component will be completed Fall 2019.

Construction of the north phase from Columbia Lane to 2230 North is anticipated to commence early Summer 2020.

Funding for the trail enhancements come mostly from revenue generated from Provo’s RAP Tax. The improvements to the trail include:

  • Enhancing the capacity of the trail and reducing traffic conflicts.
  • Improving the safety of the corridor through smoother transitions to sidewalks, bridges and other crossings.
  • Increasing lighting and more comfortable trail access points.
