Unlimited-Play-Center_260Unlimited 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. Some additional financial assistance is needed to complete this project. A short video with more information about the Unlimited Play Center can be found by clicking here.

Construction of this new play center will begin in the winter with an opening in the summer of 2019. 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

The long-awaited renovation and enhancement of the Provo River Parkway Trail are now underway and the construction of sections of the pathway, structures, and bridges are just around the corner. Funding for the trail enhancement comes mostly from revenue generated from Provo’s RAP Tax. These funds have now accumulated to allow commencement of the project, with important design improvements that will:

  • Enhance the capacity of the trail and reduce traffic conflicts.
  • Improve the safety of the corridor through smoother transitions to sidewalks, bridges and other crossings.
  • Increase lighting and more comfortable trail access points.

A design committee consisting of neighborhood representatives and other Provo residents have worked with city staff and a design consultant to design the trail and to select the needed improvements. The improvements will extend from 2550 West to 2230 North and will begin this fall.
