Whether you’re looking to let off some steam, get in touch with nature, or bond with your family, Park City has an activity to keep you busy.
Hay Maze & Pumpkin Patch
A trip to the pumpkin patch is one of the best ways to ring in autumn. Heber Valley Artisan Cheese in Midway offers an immersive autumnal adventure for folks of all ages.

Rangle up the family and head to Herber Valley Artisan Cheese this October for some good ole fashioned family fun—and buy a VIP ticket to savor a serving of Aggie Ice Cream.

Swaner Saturday Morning Nature Walks 2021
Every Saturday from October 9—December 18, 2021, a knowledgeable naturalist from the Swaner Preserve & EcoCenter will take 15 people on a nature walk. Throughout the walk, you will explore wetland science, natural plant and animal species, and the history of the Swaner Preserve. Swaner Saturday Morning Nature Walks are appropriate for people of all ages. Though the terrain is generally flat, you will run into wet ground and experience uneven footing at times, which can be challenging for little ones and the disabled. Depending upon the time of year, participants may see an abundance of birds, elk, or nesting sandhill cranes. Come dressed appropriately for the weather, and enjoy a curated autumn walk through the Swaner Preserve.
