Fairmont Park: GO Bond Project

Project Description

This project is funded by the GO Bond approved by voters in November 2022.

Fairmont Park is a well-loved, 27.07-acre park comprised of athletic fields, various athletic courts (pickleball, sand volleyball, and a half basketball court), playgrounds, pavilions, restrooms, a skate park, an off-leash dog area, and a fishing pond. The Fairmont Aquatic Center, Sugar House Boys & Girls Club, Youth City, and a Public Lands Park Ranger hub all share the property with the park. The park is located in the Sugar House neighborhood, an area of Salt Lake City known for being vibrant, social, and walkable. Recent years have brought new businesses and housing developments, resulting in rapid growth and changing demographics.

On the southeast corner of Sugarmont Drive and 900 East is a dilapidated tennis court that belongs to the City. Funding for the courts was not allocated for several years, resulting in the courts falling into their current state of disrepair. There have been several attempts to repurpose the courts, including a period where they were used as a community garden. This came to a halt after various water issues arose. Overall, the courts have remained largely unusable for 20+ years.

Public engagement gathered throughout this planning process will determine community priorities and future uses of this space, in addition to safety improvements park-wide.

Project Updates

Public Lands is currently working on a RFQ to get a consultant on board. The consultant will help to carry out the engagement and develop concept designs for the project. It is expected that a consultant will be selected by early summer. At that point, robust community engagement will begin.
