“a few reasons to visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2008

The city and county building at Washington Square is an interesting example of late 1800s looking architecture, Which may be inspirational to steam punks or architecture geeks. A few bronze statues and a fountain are on the west lawn. There are also several annual festivals which use the lawn and street as a venue, including Salt Lake Pride, Living Traditions, Salt lake City Arts festival and a couple others. The rest of the year however, most people will find very little at this site.
Washington square is a popular hangout for the less fortunate which may be off-putting to some. However it is worth a look if you're planning on visiting the City Library. I suggest taking the city library's elevator to the top floor and seeing the CC building from the roof.
