Commemorates Brigham Young's statement when he saw the Salt Lake valley. It also remembers the Mormon pioneers and the Donner Party,

This is a pioneer training center. There is so much to do... pan for gold, make candles, learn pioneer dances, be entertained by Indian dancing, and so much more. Children, teens and adults will find something to enjoy as you visit this park.

We found the park when looking for the Pony Express Monument which is within the park. There are numerous monuments, train rides and gift shop. Definitely worth a stop. We just drove around seeing the monuments and there was no charge.
