We do not belong to the LDS church but still found this quaint little site interesting. We stumbled upon this tiny memorial park while walking the neighborhood and were surprised to find it the burial location of Brigham Young.

The monument and fountain were nice to see. The area is quite small but was worth the stop to have a short walk. It was quite peaceful.

It is a very beautiful little park that also holds Brigham Young's grave and part of his family's graves too. I love going to there to reflect on his life and the legacy he left behind here in Utah.

you are in the middle of this serene areas, where nuns and mormon prefects try to talk to you right next to a water fountain. Then you turn around and have a statue there. You read all about the history, and think interesting.

I was quite surprised to find this park hidden amoung apartment buildings in downtown SLC. It is a peaceful and rather beautiful burial ground for Brigham Young and family members.

Not really a major destination - but a part of a complete visit to Temple Square. Worth seeing - but not the goal in and of itself!
