New Park Rules

South Ogden City has many wonderful parks and we're hoping to make them safe and enjoyable. In order to do that we've created some park rules that we will have posted at each park. Click the link below and you will be able to access those rules.

Park Rules

You'll notice that we have different rules for 40th Street Park and Friendship Park. The reason for that is that we don't allow any dogs, on or off leash, at those two parks. The rest of the parks in South Ogden allow dogs, but only if they are on a leash. South Ogden City has explored the possibility of creating a dog park, but it's still in the formitive stages.

You might also notice that we have rules for our tennis courts. We have just built new tennis courts at the 40th Street Park to add to the courts at Friendship Parks. We generally don't have to worry about people waiting to use the courts, but this summer we had quite a few people use the courts at 40th Street Park.

The Park Rules also include rules regarding the new Splash Pad. The new Splash Pad is at the South Ogden Nature Park (5874 S. 1175 E.) which opened last fall. The Splash Pad will be free of charge and we expect that it will have heavy use. We welcome all to come and try it out. We're excited to get it up and running starting on Memorial Day of 2008.
