Ivins ( EYE-vinz) is a city in southwestern Washington County, Utah, United States. It is a part of the St. George Metropolitan Area as a suburb or "bedroom" community. The population was 6,753 at the 2010 census, and it was estimated at 8,913 in 2018. Although Ivins was listed as a town in the 2000 census, it became a city in 1998.
In recent years, the culture of Ivins has transitioned from that of a sleepy farming community to a more affluent bedroom community and resort town. This is due to adjacent attractive scenery and recreation opportunities, such as Snow Canyon State Park.
Prior to the arrival of Mormon settlers, this area was inhabited for thousands of years by the Paiute people and their ancestors. The Shivwits Band of Paiutes reservation is located immediately west of Ivins City.
Ivins was born out of the fulfilled dream of several men to bring water to the Santa Clara bench.
