One of the things that makes Woodland Hills such a great place is our unique quality of life.  Beyond the natural beauty of our surroundings, the city supports one of the state’s most picturesque parks and a variety of family-friendly recreational activities.  We also support a growing trail system.  In partnership with the mayor and city council, the Woodland Hills Parks, Trails, and Recreation Committee oversees these unique public resources and recreational activities.



The Steve Lauritzen Memorial Field is a ten-acre public area at the top of the city with a spectacular view overlooking Utah Lake and the Utah Valley.  A paved path rings the park and provides an excellent place to exercise.  The park includes approximately five acres of wooded land and a large grassy field.  A covered pavilion with eight tables is available for public use and can be reserved (for a fee) through the city recorder’s office.  There is also a playground with swings and other activities for children.  “The Birdie” disc golf course is found in the park.  It is a 9 hole, 1,941 foot course partly in the grass and partly in the woods.

Motorized vehicles of any kind are prohibited.  Dogs must be leashed and you must clean up waste from your dog.  No fires of any kind are allowed in the park.  A portable toilet facility is available.  The park is closed from 11 PM to 6 AM.



We also organize or help support several community-building events throughout the year.  These include our Annual Town Clean-Up and Arbor Day Celebration in May, Woodland Hills Days in September, Trunk-or-Treat in October, and the Christmas Tree Lighting in December.  With the completion of our new Community Center, we sponsor other indoor activities.

For more information about any of these events or venues, contact the City Recorder.
