Walk in the Red Hills Desert Garden

On Saturday Seth, Bo (our yorkie) and I went for a walk in the Red Hills Desert Garden. The ground ended up being way to hot for little Bo so Seth carried him around for a while and then waited in the car for me to finish my walk and picture taking. The Red Hills Desert Garden is a really pretty spot. It has beautiful views of the city and shows off the desert landscaping look.

The Water Conservancy District opened the garden in May of this year.  According to this article by St. George News other partners in the project were The City of St. George, Virgin River Program, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, Utah Division of Water Resources and the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve. The garden has endangered species and is meant to give people ideas of how to landscape without using too much water. The garden is next to the office building for the Water Conservancy District near the Dixie rock.

Weather: Low 100's

Difficulty: Easy walk

Pets: Dogs are allowed on a leash

Location: 375 N Red Hills Parkway, St. George, UT 84770

Cost: Free

 These swings are my favorite. This one is the best one in my opinion because I think it has the best views. It is at the highest point of the garden.
