Peace Labyrinth: GO Bond Project

Project Description

Peace Labyrinth Open Space is located along the Jordan River in the Glendale neighborhood in Council District 2. This area currently includes art, benches, and wide open space.

Using funds from the Parks, Trails, & Open Space General Obligation Bond (GO Bond), approved in November 2022, Peace Labyrinth Open Space will be “reimagined” to better reflect neighborhood needs and identities. This may include the addition of amenities or unique elements that capture the surrounding neighborhood’s identity and history; increasing elements of placemaking; or adding multilingual identity and wayfinding signage.

With Peace Labyrinth Open Space being located along the Jordan River corridor, our public engagement strategy will be synchronized with the vision of the Emerald Ribbon Action Plan, while also taking into account the site-specific desires gathered during engagement.

First Phase of Engagement

Community Engagement

Public Lands is conducting public engagement to ensure that the space is designed to meet the needs of the community and will be used for future years. There are two significant opportunities for the public to contribute their input. In the current initial phase, we aim to understand the community’s desires and vision for the space. In the second phase, we will provide designs based on the feedback we heard. During this stage, we encourage the public to review and share their thoughts, allowing us to refine and align the open space with the community’s aspirations.

Project Updates

In the Spring of 2024, SLC Public Lands asked the members in the community what improvements they would like to see at Peace Labyrinth. Public Lands is now evaluating the feedback we collected to develop concept designs for the space based on the community’s desires.

Once the proposed designs are developed, we will ask the public to review to ensure the features that are important to the community are included.

A report will be made available that summarizes what we heard and the next steps for the project.

Stay tuned for upcoming engagement opportunities!
