JANUARY 3, 2019 - Dredging of the pond at Sugar House Park will begin January 2019 through Spring 2019. Construction crews will be removing built up sediments on the pond floor to revitalize the pond and return the water depth to approximately six feet.
Since the park’s formation in the 1950's, 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.
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.
