Welcome to La Verkin City!
La Verkin City lies on the north banks of the Virgin River opposite Hurricane City to the south, and Toquerville to the north. La Verkin is centrally located in the heart of what is known as the Grand Circle, which includes Zion National Park (20 miles) Bryce Canyon National Park (106 miles) and Grand Canyon National Park (125 Miles). The La Verkin Pah Tempe Hot Mineral Springs is located in the Timpoweap Canyon immediately south of the community. Early settlers and local Native Americans regarded the hot springs as a place for healing and relaxing, available to friend or foe. Although the hot springs are currently closed, in late 2018 Washington County, La Verkin City, Hurricane and the Water Conservancy District are conducting a feasibility study to reopen them for public enjoyment.
La Verkin is a remarkable little city with a history rich in heritage and unmatched community spirit. Known as the Beautiful Valley, because of its rich farmlands that filled the La Verkin bench between the La Verkin Creek on the west and the Hurricane Fault to the east.
The city motto is "The Beautiful Valley: A Proud Past...A Promising Future". From the time the first settlers came to La Verkin up to the present day, La Verkin has been a great place to live. "La Verkin is a friendly, economically vibrant and diverse community that provides opportunities for successful employment, quality education, relaxing retirement and active recreation. It is a visually attractive and comfortable city that values its healthy, happy and safe atmosphere for residents and visitors"--all located in the magnificent scenic setting of Southern Utah.
