Wardle Fields Regional Park

Wardle Fields began as an 80-acre farm run by the Wardle family. Now, 40 acres of it are developed. For nearly fifty years, the Wardle family grew alfalfa, barley, and sugar beets on the property from the early 1900s until the 1950s, when Charles Wardle passed away.  Upon his passing, the family chose to sell the land to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, which was later purchased in 2008 by Salt Lake County.

All the water enjoyed at the Wardle Fields splash pad goes through a filter and is then used to water the adjacent park. If the splash pad is not in use, the culinary system is deployed. During a drought, deployment of the culinary system is reduced.
