You are right in town and park and hike down into the canyon on paved switchbacks and stairs and part is like a city park with mowed grass and a pond and a large area for dogs to frolic off leash. Part is more rugged and natural and a stream nearby with some small waterfalls give off a relaxing sound.... More

The first part of this trail is pretty dry and hot but once you pass the water treatment plant it gets good. There is more shade and it is a lot more green. I love going here in the fall it is a great trail to run.

Very pleasant shopping open air site with an actual creek running through with rocks and plants. In winter, it is under roof. Plenty of parking available close by.

beautiful place to walk close to downtown! Very nice spot to walk your dog off leash right next to the river. Very nice cool spot on a hot day!

Breathtaking views of the city! There are variety of hikes you can take or you can spend the day in Memory Grove if you don't feel like hiking.

This is definitely my favorite place in the city to go to for a quick get away. Great hiking/biking trails with incredible views of the city.

CIty Creek is the creek that runs through the middle of Salt Lake City, and that has been turned into an urban stream through this shopping mall. Lots of nice stores and restuarants, underground parking is reasonably priced (about $1/hour), and is a nice place to start/end a walking tour of downtown or Temple Square directly across the street.

Perfect place to escape the city heat, get to a place for physical activity....I was bicycling (odd numbered day), while others ran, jogged, walked. Plenty of rest rooms and picnic areas. Service vehicles on the road which probably helped keep the earlier sighted bear back to its home! Be sure to carry all bike tools as there are none available... More

Gorgeous mall! Stores are high end and a bit pricey. Loved the retractable roof! Didn't eat at the food court but we traipsed through it. Good selection of restaurants
