  • 2006 Parks & Open Space Bond Purchase
  • Year: 2010/2011
  • Acreage: 5.5 acres
  • Price: $427,000
  • Partners: Salt Lake City Open Space, Utah Open Lands and the LDS Church
  • Acquisition:  Conservation easement.

This parcel of open space is contiguous to the 12 acre Wasatch Hollow Park and will provide contiguous protection for an important riparian area along Emigration Creek. This property has been privately owned for 45 years and recently has seen a handful of multi-unit development projects be proposed for build on this parcel. Wasatch Hollow is an area with a strong community presence that advocates for restoration and possibly a site for outdoor education classes that showcase watershed stewardship, wildlife and vegetation in an urban setting.  Salt Lake County holds a conservation easement on this parcel.
