Magna Regional Park Groundbreaking
Magna, Utah — Salt Lake County Mayor Jenny Wilson along with several community leaders will celebrate the beginning of construction on a large regional park in Magna on Wednesday, October 2nd at 10:30 a.m. at the park’s future site located at 4042 South 7200 West.
Phase I of Magna Regional Park includes approximately 25 acres of amenities: one multi-purpose field, a destination playground and splash pad, walking paths, several pavilions, as well as restrooms, parking and a maintenance facility. Future phases of construction will add an additional 34 acres to the park.
“It brings me great joy to see a park of this scale come to this community,” said Salt Lake County Mayor Jenny Wilson. “Our regional parks are incredible assets to this valley. They provide an inclusive way for everyone in the county to participate in a multitude of outdoor activities. This park will have a positive impact on not just Magna’s quality of life, but also the surrounding communities — and not just for this generation, but multiple generations to come.”
Salt Lake County Parks and Recreation has been planning a park for this site since purchasing 62 acres of land from Orbital ATK through the 2012 Regional Parks and Trails Bond. Development and design began once the Zoo, Arts and Parks & Recreation Bond was approved by Salt Lake County voters in 2016.
The park was designed G. Brown Design through a robust community outreach process. It will be constructed by S & L Incorporated and Phase I is expected to be completed in May 2021. For more information go to https://www.slco.org/parks-recreation/planning.
