Sugar House Park

Since the park’s formation in 1950s, Sugar House Park has been the crown jewel of the historic Sugar House area of Salt Lake City.  The 110-acre park features several amenities as well as a large pond, hilly areas ideal for sledding, access to Parley's Trail, and a 1.38-mile road with a 16-foot inside lane for pedestrians.

Historical Information

The former site of Utah's first state prison, Salt Lake City and Salt Lake County jointly acquired the land from the State of Utah in the 1950's following the prison move to the Point of the Mountain. In 1957, the park was established and the city and county proceeded to deed the property, in trust, to the Sugar House Park Authority and continue to maintain a partnership to provide park maintenance.
