The use and demand of off leash dog parks within Salt Lake City continues to grow each year. This growth prompted residents from the Sugarhouse Community Council to submit a 2017 funding request to improve off-leash dog parks at Fairmont, Herman Franks, Rotary Glen and Jordan Park. These enhancements will improve the human and canine experience by providing new dog fountains, dog agility features, durable surfacing and benches at all locations. The most heavily used dog park in the City, Herman Franks Park, will also receive a new shade structure and a small tree island to provide users reprieve from the heat and a place to rest during the hot summer months. SLC Public Lands thanks residents from the Sugar House Community Council for their support and initiation of this project. Construction bids for the project have been awarded and construction is estimated to begin in April 2019.
