Closest rafting to Park City would be on the Provo River. The Provo River is not a big river with huge rapids. It would be safe for your children. The wearing of life jackets would be required by raft trip providers.

Floating down the Provo river is fun, but it's not what you would really call a rafting trip. If you are seriously considering a rafting trip, I recommend the Snake river out of Jackson, Wyoming. There are tons of different options - rafting is quite safe unless you do something really crazy - which wouldn't be available to children than age anyway.
