Sugarhouse Park considered a “crown jewel” among regional parks in the Salt Lake Valley, comprises 110.5 acres of lush, rolling green space, located on the site of the old State Prison in the Sugar House area of Salt Lake City. It is bordered by 1300 East on the west, by 2100 South on the north, by 1700 East on the east, and by I-80 on the south. There are two entrances for vehicular traffic off of 2100 South, at 1400 East, and 1500 East.
Though known for its verdant vistas, which are enhanced by a large pond in the western part of the park, Sugar House Park also offers many options for those interested in more than just a lovely walk. Among the park’s features for public use are seven pavilions for group gatherings (see Reservations for more information); regulation soccer and baseball fields, which serve as home fields for Highland High School; a large, cement basketball court donated by the Utah Jazz; two children’s play areas, with plastic playsets; a small amphitheater with seating for 220 people; seven volleyball courts (one at each terrace), and a sleigh-riding hill.
In addition, the park road, which winds around the park for a mile and three-eighths, has a 16-foot-wide inside lane which has proven popular among walkers, runners, bicyclists, and cross-country ski trainers.
The park is open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. in the summer, and from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. in the winter.
In the winter the many hills provide a fun and free place for winter activities such as Snow-Tubing and Sledding.
