Charleston City Park is a small town park about 1/10 mile wide by 1/10 mile long. It sits in the southwest corner of Charleston, just off the shore of Deer Creek Reservoir. The park is mostly grass covered but there is a small playground on the west side. Various deciduous and coniferous trees line the streets surrounding the park, while the east half is open space. The entire perimeter can be walked in about 5 minutes, or birded well in under 10.
For a number of years there was a specific reason to travel to Charleston City park in the summer months--breeding COMMON GRACKLE seemed to be an easy get here. Otherwise the birding is typical of other sots in Heber Valley; MOURNING And EURASIAN COLLARED-DOVE are rampant--WESTERN KINGBIRD, SAY'S PHOEBE, and various species of SWALLOW might be seen in the summer months. RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET, BLACK-CAPPED CHICKADEE, AMERICAN ROBIN, and AMERICAN KESTREL are often present as well. If passing by Deer Creek in the spring or summer, its probably worth a quick stop to see if the grackles are still using the pines in the southwest corner of the park.
From the intersection of Main Street and 1200 South/US-189, head southwest on US-189 for 3.2 miles. Turn right on to 3600 South and go .5 miles till you reach the park and parking lot on your right.
