Red Hills Desert Garden is Utah’s first desert conservation garden. The nearly 5-acre garden features 5,000 water-efficient plants, a 1,150-foot stream stocked with native and endangered fish species, a replica slot canyon and prehistoric dinosaur tracks found onsite dating back 200 million years. The project is a collaboration of Washington County Water Conservancy District, City of St. George and Virgin River Program.
The desert garden is at the entrance to Pioneer Park, so it was easy to visit both.
Pioneer Park is a 52 acre community park with amazing views. We were focused on sunset, but there are plenty of paths and trails for climbing and hiking.
