Top Park City Summer Activities for Families

Are you looking for heart-thumping activities perfect for adults and kids? Searching for adventures that you can’t experience anywhere else? Well, then you’re in luck! Because Park City is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts, we have unique offerings for anyone visiting our mountain town—from parkour to riding down an Olympic bobsled track.


Utah Olympic Park: Immerse yourself in Park City’s Olympic past with a day of activities. With more than 400-acres to explore, you can spend an entire day at the Olympic Park, packed with both adrenaline-pumping activities and options for leisurely exploration. While the structure was built for the 2002 Winter Olympics, summer is a great time to visit the Olympic training grounds, two free Olympic museums, and the adventure park. If you’re looking for extra excitement, zoom down a zipline course, enjoy summer “extreme” tubing, or cruise down the Olympic bobsled track with a professional pilot. Top the day off with a Flying Aces All-Stars Show.  


Woodward Park City: Where else but our town can you find a sports hub like Woodward Park City? This massive complex features myriad indoor and outdoor activities that are sure to wow any hardcore, extreme sports fan. Visitors can book two-hour sessions in anything from parkour, inline skating, tumbling, BMX biking, and more!
