Tonaquint Park is an oasis of nature in the heart of St. George. The ripple of the Santa Clara river, the rustle of cattails and the quick scamper of lizards are just some of the sounds at the Tonaquint Nature Center. Located at 1851 South Dixie Drive, just west of Southgate Golf Course, Tonaquint Nature Center offers outdoor educational programs for all ages.
Throughout the months of June and July, the Tonaquint Nature Center hosts an interactive nature day camp for ages 4+ to 5th grade. Each day of camp is filled with new adventures, exciting experiments and opportunities to experience nature at its finest. Contact the St. George Recreation Center at (435)627-4560 for upcoming camp dates, fees and registration deadlines.
The Tonaquint Nature Center is operated by the City of St. George Leisure Services Department. The Nature Center relies on volunteers to host many of the programs. If you have a special area of interest or expertise and would like to contribute your skills, please contact the Nature Center at (435) 627-4590 or the St. George Recreation Center at (435) 627-4560.
We encourage use of the Tonaquint Nature Center facility for any outdoor educational activity or program. To schedule visits or to reserve the facility, please call the St. George Recreation Center at (435) 627-4560. Please allow a two weeks notice.
