Canyon Park Policies

General Information

Springville City operates over 400 acres of parks and campgrounds in Hobble Creek Canyon. The parks include Jolley’s Ranch, Kelly’s Grove, and Rotary Park. The areas are located just past Hobble Creek Golf Course on both forks of Hobble Creek Canyon Road. The Canyon Parks offer picnicking, camping and pavilion rentals.

Pavilions

Pavilion Rentals

We have ten pavilions of various sizes available to rent in our Canyon Parks. The pavilions may be rented for family gatherings, large group camping, company parties, church activities, weddings, and other events. All of our pavilions are fee areas. Use of our pavilions is by paid reservation only. Rental rates depend on pavilion size and length of the reservation. Pavilion areas are open April through September, weather permitting.

Pavilion Use

• Pavilion use times are 12 p.m. (noon) to 10 p.m. for day use and 12 p.m. (noon) to 10 a.m. for overnight use.

• Restrooms, playgrounds, common areas, picnic areas, sports fields, volleyball, and horseshoes are not included in any reservation and are available to all park patrons.

• Barbecues, electricity and drinking water are available at the pavilions. Lights in the pavilion come on and off with a timer.

• Pavilion users may use associated parking areas.

• Please bring your own trash bags. Leave your trash in the dumpster by your pavilion or carry it out with you.

Pavilion Reservations

• All pavilion areas are reservation areas.

• Reservations may be made online at least seven days in advance or at the Parks office.

• All reservation fees must be paid in full when reservation is made.

When a reservation is made, the person making the reservation will accept full responsibility for their group and their group’s activities.

If cancellation is  made at least three weeks to three months prior, a 50% refund will be given. Cancellations received within three weeks prior to your reservation will not receive a refund . No refund will be given if your group simply chooses not to use the pavilion or bad weather occurs.

Inflatable Bounce Houses

Springville City prohibits the use of inflatable “bounce houses” and other such devices on our City and Canyon Parks. Water slides, dunk tanks and any other such devices are prohibited because they require precious water resources and they burn the grass.

General Regulations

• A pavilion reservation includes the pavilion and the area immediately around that pavilion for camping and parking. Parking vehicles, trailers or motor homes on the grass is not acceptable. The campground at Jolley’s Ranch is not included with a pavilion reservation.

• RV’s must not be plugged into pavilion outlets or the circuits will be tripped, causing pavilion to lose electrical power.

Each pavilion has a group size limit. The limit is based on pavilion size, restroom size and available parking area. If your group is too large for one pavilion, you may need to reserve more than one pavilion area. Oversized groups may be asked to leave and/or fined up to $100.
