GLENDALE, Utah (ABC4) – Salt Lake City Public Lands is taking steps to realize its vision for the new regional park that will be located on the site of the former Glendale Water Park. Demolition work is currently being carried out on defective equipment on the site.
Design Workshop planners supported the Public Lands Division’s proposal to convert the site into an outdoor recreation space that the community could use to enjoy views of the Jordan River, participate in activities and host public events.
The Public Lands Division has worked with various local organizations and schools to ensure the creation of a community-supported vision that reflects the diversity and cultural heritage of the Glendale neighborhood.
The Kamas Valley SR 32 construction project is set to resume
The team has begun conducting a public survey to gather information about Salt Lake residents’ priorities and preferences for the new park. The survey is open to the public from March 16th to April 16th.
Residents were also invited to an in-person event on March 16 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Glendale – Mountain View Community Learning Center at 1388 Navajo Street, Salt Lake City. Project team members and volunteers from Glendale Neighborhood Council will be on hand to help residents review their options in terms of the types of outdoor recreation and amenities that should be included.
At this point, phase one improvements could be completed as early as 2024 and total approximately $3.2 million.
