Poplar Grove, the second largest neighborhood in Salt Lake City, got its name in the late 1800s after the Edwin Rushton family planted a grove of trees in the area.
Poplar Grove enjoys a vibrant multi ethnic environment. The Spanish influence is recognizable in the locally owned markets and restaurants.
Residents of this community are filled with a sense of renewal and transformation. Most are dedicated to making Poplar Grove a livable, sustainable and connective community. Thus making the 9 Line trail a community asset that connects Eastside and Westside neighborhoods and spurs redevelopment in the neighborhoods it passes through.
