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