Grocery
OPEN 24 HOURS- RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET. One of my favorite grocery stores and its within walking distance. Heads up, they do not take credit card. (Cash, check, and debit accepted). Check out the bulk section in the back! This place has great prices and lots of options. I generally buy almost everything here- winco brand cheese, milk, harpers homemade wheat bread, snacks and sweets (great price on off brand!), cereal, canned goods, etc. You can order products on their website but they don't have a weekly ad.

This is Kroger on the east coast (Vons in California). They have Boars Head meats and cheeses in the deli section and a good quality selection of fruits and vegetables (organic too). They have a nice fancy cheese section near the deli. They have an ad (you can find on smiths app or on store website) and can have good deals from that. I like to get toiletries here when they go on sale.

A small splash pad and a fun place for climbers. Also has 6 pickleball courts, tennis courts, and a 6 goal basketball court. Has baseball fields and open fields on the other side of the parking lot. What I love about this park is it is easy to see your kids wherever you are in the park. Also has 3 large covered picnic areas by the playground.

We like to hike Escalante cross and then cool off at this 5 acre reservoir after. It has a soft sandy beach (great for the littles) and the water is pretty chilly. There is concrete on all other sides that gets slippery in the water so be careful! Best part are the 3 floating trees that mosey about the lake. Swim out to them and play king of the hill with your friends! Heads up this spot can get busy and parking can be limited so get there early (and bring shade- there isn't any!)
