Murray >Murray City Park
This is a wonderful park. This is a great historical park, beautiful cottonwood trees and a classic pool with lots of wading room perfect for toddlers and young children. The Farmer's Market is one of the best, beat the crowds of downtown and come here instead, it's wonderful.
Renting a Pavilion? Go somewhere else where they care about the customer.
Summary: Horrible Customer Service - Horrible accomodations -
Growing up in Utah, I have visited Murray Park many times. Our family consistently holds gatherings in the park grounds. We were very excited to use the park once again for a graduation party in May. We reserved the Pavilion and paid our Money well in advance. The park does not allow payments over the phone or online which is also an inconvenience. The forecast was set as cloudy with a small chance of rain a week before the event. We thought we would be fine as the park requires a full 7 days notice for any refunds.
The day of the event a nasty storm came in rained all day long. Most parks will help accomodate mother nature by issuing a raincheck for a future date that has not already been reserved. We contacted Murray Park 2 days after the event (they are closed on weekends) and they refused to offer any retribution. The park had no clean up, no mess, no extra costs but yet they are still unwilling to offer any kind rain check.
Our family will never patronage this park again for any future gatherings.
The best part is the customer service agents did not even care!!! Their quote "sorry - mother nature" was all that was offered when asked if we could reserve the pavilion for another night.
Horrible experience - Horrible customer service.
Forget the city beyond and disappear among romantic walkways and thickets..
Murray Park is lush, expansive and wonderfully serene. Never mind that you're less than a stone's throw from State Street. The entrance is inconspicuous, but a run down the driveway reveals a large recreation area rich with leisure time possibilities.
Bring your bat to the baseball diamond, let your kids run wild through the playgrounds or watch a mini-musical in the outdoor amphitheater. If it's a warm day, bring your swimsuit and take a dip in the public pool. Show up around June and you may catch the annual Scottish Festival and Highland Games.
Beautiful Oasis. It's so great that this park is right in the midst of everything; it feels like a secret hideaway. It's an absolutely gorgeous spot for a date or for playing baseball, which I've done more than once.
