The Cedar City Rotary Club and Cedar City RAP Tax are on a mission to transform the Canyon Park into Cedar City's first Water Park and we NEED YOUR HELP!!

Major Donors

The Cedar City Rotary Club has supported local and worldwide projects that provide for the enrichment of children's lives since 1925.  The Club built the world class Veteran's Memorial Park among many other noteworthy projects in our community and continues to support academic scholarships to high school students to attend Southern Utah University and Southwest Tech.  Cedar City's RAP Tax has supported the ARTS and PARKS for many years.  Cedar City Motors has joined in many efforts to build a better community. NOW is the time for us to help the children in the community in another way - with homegrown, hometown water features in the beautiful Canyon Park!

What will the park include?
Heritage and History

Water features will highlight the historical use of water in the Cedar Valley and will be explained through several kiosks.

          Key Features:

               *  An all abilities area
               *  Shallow flows and sand beach for toddlers
               *  Deep runnels and interactive head-gates
               *  A bridge connecting the East/West Parks
               *  Water weirs, flumes, center pivot and irrigation practices


     On April 23rd, 2024 Rotarians, dignitaries from Cedar City, 5th Grade students from East Elementary and folks out enjoying the park gathered for the Groundbreaking for our Canyon Water Park Project!!  It was a beautiful spring day in Cedar City made all the more wonderful by a remark made by a young lady from Chrysalis:  "People don't think about people like us.  Thank you for thinking about us!!"  THAT is why the Cedar City Rotary is building this all-inclusive water play area.  AND, soon-to-come more play equipment for those of all-abilities.
