Parks Maintenance

The quality of life in any urban area is greatly enhanced by its extensive park system. This system of green space serves the recreational and open-space needs of the city’s residents. In Orem, we’re fortunate to have some of the best parks in Utah.

Besides taking care of Orem’s 22 parks, the Parks Division is also behind most of your favorite city events including Summerfest, the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival, the Memorial Day Program, and many more.
