 State park visits have skyrocketed during the pandemic, with a record amount of visitors in 2020. 

While parks have seen an uptick in visitors for the past couple years, last year there was a 33% increase, according to Scott Strong, deputy director of Utah State Parks. 

He said during the pandemic they had 10.6 million visitors, up 2.3 million from the previous year.

The snow run-off is expected to increase through the week. However, flood bulletins are not issued unless property damage accompanies the high water. Last week a canal in the Ranch Place neighborhood was overflowing a culvert and running into Cutter Lane. It was not a flood designation because the water flowed into a storm drain on the street.
