This is in a very shady area if Salt Lake City, but it is a fun park! It has a steep hill which is perfect for kids! In the summer, we ice block down, and in the winter we sled down! So fun!

Cross Country State Course The XC (cross country) State course is easily the one of the most challenging courses that any high school runner will run on. However it is also one of the most fun.

Sugarhouse is a beautiful park with a lake and stunning views of the snow capped mountain peaks surrounding SLC. The paved road winding through the park includes a number of hills, making for a good work-out. The park is great for running or walking or biking, with lovely scenery to enjoy along the way.

In the heart of the city and right off I-80 is this jewel of a park. Sugarhouse park offers everything from great bike riding to walking paths and two really good playgrounds for the kids. Add numerous picnic pavilions, and you have the perfect place for that summer family get-together!

Spring, Summer, Winter or Fall, this park is a great place to walk, to photograph, watch the waterfowl and especially observe the change in the seasons., It also has great views of the Wasatch Mountains.

I used to visit this park on a weekly basis as a child. However it has become really creepy with all the overgrown weeds, the lake front walk needs attention and the wierd dudes hanging out in the bushes freak me out. YIKES! keep your children close

Coming from Florida we didn't have any really nice parks, as Sugarhouse. Sugarhouse is very family oriented and there are lots to do (run, bike, play soccer, lay on the grass, picnic, rent a pavillion for a party/event, lots of grass room to run and play with kids and dogs). Ultimately my favorite park that I have been to. My... More

We have been here many times for company and school picnics. The park has nice pavillions, great playgrounds and a nice stream flowing though that the kids love to play in.

Quiet, litter-free, and not many homeless people, most of the parks have demanding homeless people in them
