Taufer Park: GO Bond Project

Project Description

Taufer Park is a Salt Lake City neighborhood park located in District 4 in the heart of downtown. Taufer Park was selected as one of the Reimagine Neighborhood Parks to receive funding from the Parks, Trails, & Open Space General Obligation Bond (GO Bond), approved in November 2022. Neighborhood parks funded by the GO Bond aim to invest and activate underutilized parks to increase access to green spaces and quality parks.

The vision and desired usage of the park will be guided by the input we collect when we conduct community engagement. The completed project will feature new and improved amenities that are prioritized by residents and celebrate the community this park serves. Construction is anticipated by Summer 2025 but could be subject to change.
