Salt Lake City Public Lands has initiated a planning process to create a vision for the new regional park at the former Glendale water park site. Currently, the site is undergoing demolition of old and broken equipment.

Planners at Design Workshop are supporting the Public Lands Division to redevelop the site into an outdoor recreation space for the community to use in a variety of ways, from enjoying the natural landscape of the Jordan River and its trail connections to providing more opportunities for activities and events.

Since fall 2021, the planning team has worked closely with project stakeholders, neighborhood residents, and partners and students at Glendale Middle and Mountain View Elementary Schools to create a community-supported vision that reflects the Glendale neighborhood’s diversity and rich cultural heritage.

The team is excited to launch this public survey to get input on Salt Lake City residents’ priorities and preferences for what should be included at the new park site. The survey will be open for public input from March 16 through April 16, 2022.

Residents are also invited to participate at an in-person event on March 16, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Glendale – Mountain View Community Learning Center, 1388 Navajo Street, Salt Lake City, UT 84104. Members of the project team and volunteers from the Glendale Neighborhood Council will be there to help participants weigh in on the types of outdoor recreation opportunities and amenities that should be included.

The project team will then incorporate public input from past process engagement, the survey and in-person event, along with data gained from existing conditions, programming and development studies, and ecological assessment, into a vision plan to be presented to City Council and the public later this summer. Phase 1 improvements, $3.2 million in development impact fees, could be completed as early as Spring 2024. The public can also sign-up for email updates to be informed throughout the process by visiting the project website or completing this form.
