Nibley City has a unique treasure at our NEW Firefly Park (adjacent to Virgil Gibbons Heritage Park) along with other wonderful nature park amenities. Firefly Close Up

Did you know there are fireflies in Nibley, Utah? Nibley is home to one of the few easily accessable public locations in the western U.S. where fireflies can be seen.
Quick Links:


HOW & WHEN: You can actually see them light up right here in Nibley for a short season!
The fireflies come out in early June and are usually gone by the first part of July. They typically don’t come out until about 10 p.m. and one of the best times to view them is during a New Moon.
The fireflies live in Nibley’s Firefly Park. The best place to see them is along the sidewalk on the west side of Virgil Gibbons Heritage Park, near the big Willow Tree, where Firefly Park borders Heritage Park. You can park in either the parking lot for Heritage Park, located at 2380 S 800 W, or in the Firefly Park parking lot, which is located at 2400 S 1000 W. Please be aware of where your headlights are facing and turn them off as soon as it is safe to do so.
Nibley’s parks are normally closed at this time of night, but special permission is granted for firefly viewing this time of year. Nevertheless, please be respectful of neighbors and other park visitors by being quiet and by not adding light pollution. 
No capture Fireflies

Firefly Park is a nature park and it is illegal to capture or disturb wildlife there. This includes catching fireflies. Please do NOT attempt to catch the fireflies. They are a rare species and if too many of them are captured, we could lose this magical treasure.
FIREFLY TOURS: Offered by Stokes Nature Center these tours offer an imersive interpretive experience with fireflies at our NEW Firefly Park.  We suggest signing up well in advance as the tours typically sell out.  Link> Nibley Firefly Tours by: Stokes Nature Center

Nature Playground

Nature Themed Playground: a big hit with kids and their parents and a great feature to our New Firefly Nature Park
Kids of all ages are connecting to nature through their imagination at the nature playground that features log walk balance beams and a hollow log crawl through, a spinning mushroom, a frog climber, mushroom stepping platforms, and inovative companion swings.  

Bird Watching

Local Bird Watching Paradise 
The wetlands and open space native vegitation at Firefly Park create an ideal location to view dozens of birds that live and migrate through our valley. 


Monarch ButterfliesMonarch Butterfly
