Thanks to Salt Lake County and local community groups coming together, a once graffiti-ridden and neglected park is now a safe and fun gathering space for a
neighborhood with many refugee and immigrant families. As kids played on the new and improved playground, I joined community partners to celebrate the reopening of Sunnyvale Park in Millcreek. Sunnyvale will be a gathering place for a farmers market, after-school programming, and of course lots of play. With a little bit of planning and
cooperation, the Sunnyvale Community has reclaimed this space for that purpose.
It’s a great example of building a healthy community together.
