La Verkin, UtahPhotos, maps and news from La Verkin, Utah.Updated February 25, 2018.

La Verkin is a city in Washington County, Utah, United States. The population was 4,060 as of 2010, an increase from 3,392 in 2000. La Verkin is within walking distance of Hurricane, Utah, and the two cities have historically had close ties. Theories about the origin of the city's name suggest that it may be a corruption of the Spanish la virgen, after the nearby Virgin River, or possibly an error in the transcription of the term "beaver skin." The city made national headlines in 2001 when the City Council passed an ordinance declaring La Verkin a "United Nations-free zone". La Verkin contains the southern most highway junction to Zion National Park, at the intersection of Utah SR-9. The city is also home to Pah Tempe Hot Springs; a historic volcanic sulfur spring that sits on the edge of Virgin River. There's also a noted pony-truss style bridge, built in 1908, that rises some 200 feet (61 m) over the river, spanning over 75 feet (23 m) in length. La Verkin Elementary School is the only public school in the city. Higher grades attend school in neighboring Hurricane, UT. The city contains several large private schools for troubled youth, most visibly Cross Creek Academy. La Verkin continued to grow during the 2009 recession and seemed largely unscathed. There is a single large, modern market (Farmer's Market & Pharmacy), which includes gas, and one other gas station. As of 2013, a popular new gourmet coffee house, a thrift store, one gas station, a Mexican restaurant (since closed), and a couple of auto repair shops are open, as well as other small stores that serve the new-home industry. Recently built subdivisions were required to incorporate neighborhood parks into their master plans. The single City Park hosts several large events throughout the year, including fireworks shows, craft fairs. Law Enforcement; La Verkin Police Department and Washington County Sheriff's Department. Fire Department; Hurricane Valley Fire Department. Power Department; Rocky Mountain Power, Ash Creek Water District, managed by La Verkin City Power Department.
