It’s that time of year again, when parents are forced to hear the oft-repeated “I’m bored” from their kids. Luckily, Sandy City has no shortage of fun activities to keep every bored kid and exasperated parent happy. And, to make it even easier, we’ve compiled 30 ideas into our first ever Beat Boredom Bucket List, available to print from our website at www.sandynow.com/bucketlist.
A few highlights include:
Park Splash Pad
1245 East 9400 South
Open 10 AM-9 PM
In only its second season, our splash pad has proven to be a highly popular attraction. An ideal to beat the heat, have fun in a safe environment and enjoy our incredible views—and all for free!
Designed with our “Mountain Meets Urban” theme, the splash pad has features highlighting the seven creeks running into our valley: City Creek, Red Butte, Parley’s, Emigration, Millcreek and both Big and Little Cottonwood.
Sandy City Amphitheater
Already one of the most scenic, intimate venues, the Sandy Amphitheater has been improved even more to accommodate the growing interest. We’ve added more than 1,000 new reserved seats, maintained plenty of lawn seating and added a new ADA accessible path and a new entry gate on the southwest corner. What hasn’t changed is the quality of the entertainers, the beauty of the amphitheater or the high value/low cost of the entertainment. It truly is entertainment that connects generations.
Sego Lily Gardens
This relatively unknown oasis is a hidden gem just waiting to be discovered. Our award-winning garden, established in 1999, was recently featured by Big Budah on Fox 13 as both a beautiful attraction and an educational resource for those looking for
water-wise landscaping options. Sitting on 2.5 acres, it boasts 11 specialty gardens and a wealth of yard projects you can complete as a family. A free conservation kit is given to everyone and kids will love the Sego Lily Gardens Scavenger Hunt activity they can do while you are jotting down ideas.
Summer is all about having fun while making memories. Print off the Beat Boredom Bucket List today and keep the “I’m bored” out of summer…without breaking the bank.
