Parks >Sugar House Park Shop
Soak in the sun or play in the snow at one of the city's largest and cleanest parks..
Today, Sugar House Park is a favorite recreation place; it wasn't always so comfortable. A prison was built on the site in 1854, before Utah was even a state. Although it was guarded with 12-foot-high fences, conditions were overcrowded and escapes were frequent. Decay continued and, in 1951, a new prison was built at the point of the mountain; Sugar House was later converted to a public park.
One of the biggest parks in town, Sugar House offers many attractions: a duck pond, pavilions for barbecues, a soccer field, playgrounds, baseball diamonds, and acres of grass for picnics, frisbee, jogging or kite-flying. Several hills are perfect for sledding in winter. Parley's Creek runs through Sugar House Park and feeds the duck pond on the westernmost end of the park.
Every rating deserves a catchy title.. It's large, clean and almost always has something going on. The pond is pretty nice as well.
Beautiful picnic area. This huge park is a great place to come for a picnic in the summertime. There are lots of tables by the stream and plenty of playground equipment to keep kids occupied for hours. The perimeter is also a great walking/running path.
