Start planning your summer adventures today
It’s never too early to start planning your summer fun! Salt Lake Valley is home to parks of all kinds. Some have historical themes, others are designed for quiet reflection and remembrance. There are parks for walking, hiking, and biking. Now, ball parks? There are plenty here! No, the county did not forget your pets, there are dog parks galore in this family-oriented valley. Utah takes its recreation seriously.
In Sandy, Utah, Lone Peak Park is a local favorite with nearly 29 acres of fun.
