Salt Lake City Parks is considering two improvements for Jordan Park. These are 1) removing the softball field west of the skate park and replacing it with a grass multi-use field, and 2) removing the pool house to create space for a looped walking path around the park.
Over the last few years, the City has seen an increase in demand for multi-use fields and a decrease in demand for softball/baseball fields. Removing Jordan Park’s softball field would only impact the field West of the skate park. The field South of the bike polo court would remain unchanged. Additionally, the pool house is not being used and has become a target of vandalism and break-ins. By removing the pool house, Parks hopes to increase the safety of Jordan Park while eliminating costs associated with cleaning and re-securing the building after vandalism or break-ins.
This survey’s purpose is to gain public input on removing the pool building and West baseball field, as well as updating Jordan Park with new looped pathways and a multi-use field. All feedback is welcome and anonymous.
