Once the site of Utah Territorial Prison, this park is a lot more pleasant today, with a gently rolling landscape great for running.

This park is so serene and beautifully landscaped with a little lake. I have gone to countless BBQs there and it's the perfect setting for them. It's great for jogging, walking, bike riding, photo shoots, etc. I don't have much more to say about it except it is truly lovely.

This park isn't the best. There's a stinky pond where you can feed the geese and ducks, but there's tons of poop. The playgrounds (there are at least two) are just average, your basic playground with nothing fancy, but enough to keep kids interested for a while. There are tons of wasps in the late summer to ruin your picnic.... More

Sugarhouse park is 3/4 way to most eastern boundary of Sugarhouse and extends to the East Bench. In the summer people jog, run their dogs, play frisbee and picnic. Several pavilions are available for rent from $70 for 1/2 day and $100.00 full day. Many family and business outings make reservations a must and well in advance. The topography of... More

Sugarhouse Park is a great place for family and group picnics, with playgrounds and covered table areas situated along a central drive. A beautiful water retention pond is at the center of this property used by everyone from joggers to sledding enthusiasts depending on the season. Community fireworks in July with space enough for all and accessible by freeway, I-80... More

We went to Sugar House Park and had a good time. The lake is very pretty. There are lots of birds. There is many large green areas, group picnic areas, and places to enjoy being in the park. There is a playground for children. What I like most about is is that it is a large park so you can... More

This park is huge and has something for everyone. Whether it's soccer, football, jogging, bicycling, softball, volleyball, picnic, barbecue, feeding ducks, or play grounds then this is the place. The only thing this park is missing is a public pool. This is by far the best park in Utah.

Best sledding hill in Salt Lake City, with straw bales at the bottom keeping children from soaring into areas with cars. For every season, a beautifully maintainbed large city park with duck pond, fun playgrounds, jogging trail and dog friendly (leash required). Fourth of July is a must - but get there early to enjoy festivities and get a good... More

Great place to to relax or run. Tranquil, but can get crowded on the weekends. Lots of open spaces and great views of the Wasatch range.

I have always enjoyed this park. It's in a nice neighborhood. It's always beautiful and they have fireworks in the summer and sledding in the winter. It's great for families and picnics. I have always had a good time at this park.
