Warm Springs Park and North Gateway Park: Reimagine Neighborhood Parks, Trails, and Open Spaces

Warm Springs Park and North Gateway Park:

Reimagine Neighborhood Parks, Trails, and

Open Spaces

Project Scope

Warm Springs Park and North Gateway Park are two Salt Lake City neighborhood parks in Council District 3 of the Capitol Hill neighborhood. Warm Springs Park and North Gateway 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 by voters 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 as soon as Summer 2026, but could be subject to change.

Community Engagement

In April 2015, a Park Master Plan was created for Warm Springs Park. Although Salt Lake City’s Public Lands Department wishes to respect the community opinions and preferences that shaped this master plan, we also want to ensure that funded improvements in the near future are aligned with current community feedback, as well. The preferences demonstrated in this upcoming engagement phase, future engagement, budgeting/finances, and site limitations will guide the project’s outcome.

Please complete the survey below to inform us how you would like the park improved and what projects to prioritize. The first engagement phase will close on December 30, 2023!

Phase 1 Engagement

Indigenous Land Acknowledgement

A component of the project will be an Indigenous Land Acknowledgement in Warm Springs Park, led by the Salt Lake City Mayor’s Office. The Salt Lake City’s Mayor’s office wants to hear from Indigenous & Native American residents, communities, and organizations of Utah to understand if the Land Acknowledgment statements are in line with what the community finds acceptable and appropriate for use city-wide.

If you are an Indigenous & Native American resident, please click the link below to take the survey or participate in a hour long discussion on December 13th (online) or 14th (in-person). The discussion will center on how to develop the following:

  • Land acknowledgment
  • Medicinal garden
  • Artwork

Public Lands staff will also be holding a group discussion for Hawaiian and Pacific Islander to learn how to reflect the legacy of Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders at the park. Click here to learn more.
