White City Canal Trail

White City Canal Trail Header

Project Overview

The White City Canal Trail project aims to utilize an abandoned canal to provide a significant north-south connection from 9400 South at Big Bear Park to the Sandy Canal Trail at 10600 South, which will provide further connectivity to other regional trails in the area including: Dimple Dell, Draper Canal, Jordan River Parkway and Porter Rockwell. Additionally, the trail will provide a safe route to local schools in the surrounding neighborhoods. 

The project consists of developing a 12-foot wide paved multi-use pedestrian and bike trail and a 6-foot wide gravel trail along the existing canal corridor.  It also consists of constructing a 347-foot pedestrian bridge to span over Dimple Dell Regional Park at approximately 800 East.

Funding for the trail is made possible by Salt Lake County voters and the 2016 ZAP 3 Parks & Recreation Bond
