are exciting park projects in the works all over Salt Lake County. This week we
broke ground for the construction of Lodestone Regional Park in what will be a
beautiful spot of Kearns Township.
park includes an open lawn area, two playgrounds, an athletic field, a large
pavilion, tennis courts, pickle ball courts, a basketball court sponsored by
the Utah Jazz and a giant truck tire donated by Kennecott. It will be quite a
park! When it’s finished, families and friends will have a place to break away
from work, school, chores and television and get outdoors.
project and others like it are thanks to the Park Bond that Salt Lake County
residents voted for in 2012. Through it we were able to issue $47 million in
bonds to put directly into community parks and trails. Our county is growing
rapidly, and if we want a future where our kids and grandkids have green space
and places that aren’t just paved over, these new parks and spaces are
essential in our community.
