“By opening with new guidelines and protocols, we’ve created a safe and responsible place for families to recreate,” says Shaydar Edelmann, general manager of Woodward Park City. “Connecting community members to their passions is what Woodward Park City is all about and we’re excited for a phased opening of our action sports parks, brand new mountain biking, and summer camp to do exactly that.”

Woodward Park City expects operations to expand as summer progresses and guidelines allow. In addition to new lift-served mountain biking; the trampoline and parkour zone, and rental & retail operations are scheduled to reopen in June.
