The Summit County Council has thought a lot in recent months about trails in the Basin that are getting loved to death, and on Wednesday the Council took another step to enable the Basin Recreation District to enforce parking regulations around the trailheads by voting to amend the operational policies of the Recreation District.


Council Chairman Doug Clyde said the impacts of recreationists flocking to the Basin is not something planners expected when they designed the trails—or the neighborhoods around the trails.


Snyderville Basin Recreation District

Snyderville Basin Recreation has closed down its four dog parks, and the trails could be next – if residents don’t practice the required social distancing – 6 feet away from the next person.

The closure of the four dog parks – Run A Muck, Willow Creek, Trailside, and The Woods at Parleys Lane - were closed on Monday. These are the latest in a series of closures by Basin Recreation… the  lap pool,  the playgrounds and park pavilions and the skate park. Basin Recreation District Director Brian Hanton says they’ve been considering closing the dog parks for a while now…


The weather isn’t being cooperative, but still, the upcoming Memorial Day weekend is the kick-off to summer—for the Snyderville Recreation District and many others.

Hanton noted that the splash pad at the Basin Fieldhouse will be open on Friday.

At their last meeting, the Snyderville Recreation District Board discussed a couple of land issues—such as the sale of some density entitlement.
