Parks & Recreation Department
Creating a Sustainable Community through People, Parks, and Programs
FROM THE SHADY picnic areas of Adams Park to the exciting terrain of the Logan Skate Park to the refreshing water at the Logan Aquatic Center, the Logan Parks and Recreation Department has something for everyone. Our purpose is to serve the leisure and recreational needs of the community. Five divisions help us accomplish our objective of creating quality life-long experiences for men, women, and children. These divisions are Administration, Cemetery, Golf Course, Parks and Trails, and Recreation.
Each summer and winter the Parks and Recreation Department releases a Leisure Guide which highlights all the services and activities our department provides, such as recreational sports leagues for children and adults, fitness classes, nature education, parks and trails, and so much more. Check out the most recent Leisure Guide and start benefiting from all the recreation opportunities living in Logan provides.

Logan River Restoration Conservation Action Plan
The Logan River, an integral part of the greater Bear River ecosystem, originates within the Bear River Mountains in the headwaters of Logan Canyon and terminates at its confluence with the Little Bear River in Cutler Reservoir. The river is an asset to residents of Logan City and Cache County and has historically supported many beneficial uses. The Logan River was an important resource for Native Americans and pioneers, and it remains valuable today. Cache Valley citizens are attracted to the river and enjoy the aesthetics, recreational values, and wildlife resources associated with this highquality river, which supports fish, wildlife, and many plant species unique to riparian and wetland habitats. The Logan River also provides water for irrigation, municipal water supply, and hydroelectricity.
To protect the Logan River from degradation and the growing threats of floodplain development, a Conservation Action Plan (CAP) has been developed for the portions of the Logan River from First Dam (at the mouth of Logan Canyon) through Cache Valley to the confluence with the Little Bear River at Cutler Reservoir. The development of a short- and long-range vision for the river is needed to coordinate and prioritize conservation efforts and ensure a sustainable river system for future generations. Stakeholder groups representing residential, commercial, recreational, and agricultural interests have participated in the development of this CAP. The CAP is a dynamic set of objectives that can be revised as needed when new threats or conservation solutions are identified.
