Fun Things to Do Outside

Outdoor activities are seemingly endless when you’re visiting Rock Springs, and it’s easy to see why. Discover wide-open spaces, fresh Wyoming air and plenty of room to play at more than 15 city parks in Rock Springs. Go for a swim in one of the outdoor swimming pools offered at Washington Park, Blairtown Park and Century West Park. Let the kids loose as they splash and play at Garnet Park’s spray area, or peek into the past when you visit the historic caboose at Railroad Park. At Arthur Park, play a game of disc golf on the 9-hole course. A number of city parks also offer jogging trails, walking paths and outdoor playgrounds, beckoning for a day in the great outdoors.

Looking for an excuse to bring your golf clubs on vacation? Enjoy the juicy smells of freshly cut grass, the sensation of the sun warming your skin and the invigorating feeling of navigating a pristine golf course when you play a game at White Mountain Golf Course, a 27-hole championship course that is known as one of the best public golf courses in the state. Take your pick from the 9-hole Desert Course, the 9-hole Lakes Course or the 9-hole Sands Course, each offering its own distinct landscape and challenges.

For adventurers willing to venture outside city limits, explore the dramatic landscape and unbeatable views at Killpecker Sand Dunes, located just north of Rock Springs. Here, hiking, ATVing, exploring and playing Frisbee are must-try experiences.

Indoor Recreational Activities

For heart-pumping action indoors, look no further than the Rock Springs Civic Center, where a 56-foot indoor climbing wall will test the limits of climbers of all skill levels. Problem-solve your way across climbing challenges such as the top-to-bottom crack, various overhangs and the bouldering cave. Not into climbing? Take your pick from an array of other recreational activities at the recreation center, from racquetball to swimming to group fitness classes.

Visitors with kids in tow won’t want to miss the Rock Springs Family Recreation Center where a family fun center of indoor recreational activities awaits. Go for a swim at the state-of-the-art aquatic area where you can float down the lazy river, splash and play in the spray water area or just relax in the therapy pool. Or, teach the kids how to play a game of basketball, volleyball or racquetball in one of the courts. During the winter, rent a pair of skates at the pro shop (or bring your own!), and glide across the full-size ice skating rink.

Whether you’re looking to get in shape or are eternally on the hunt for your next active pursuit, it’s all here in Rock Springs.
