Situated in the Glendale neighborhood (1300 South 900 West), the Three Creeks Confluence is where three major tributaries—Red Butte Creek, Emigration Creek, and Parleys Creek—join the Jordan River.
In 2014, a group of University of Utah students (later forming the Seven Canyons Trust) envisioned 100 Years of Daylighting and developed a plan to uncover the creeks and restore the area to form the Three Creeks Confluence. Through the collaborative efforts of the Seven Canyons Trust, Salt Lake City, and the community, the confluence has been transformed into a hub for wildlife, education, activity, and inspiration. Previously shrouded by overgrown vegetation and debris, the confluence is now enriched with a pedestrian and bike path, a bridge connecting to the Jordan River Trail, and a restored natural habitat for wildlife. Additionally, the new park features a fishing pier, a community plaza, public art, and educational materials. Read more about the Three Creeks Confluence project.
