New Signs Coming to Salt Lake Parks

ParksSignOpenHouseSalt Lake City is seeking public input on the creation of a new, citywide signage system for public spaces and invites residents to an open house event on Thursday, January 23rd from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Black Box Theatre at the Sorenson Unity Center, 1383 S. 900 West.

Salt Lake City is home to one of the most diverse parks and open space systems in the nation.

From steep foothills to parkway trails tracing the Jordan River, the City’s open spaces help define the community’s quality of life.

In order to enhance the user experience and stewardship of these spaces, Landmark Design, Inc. was selected to lead planning and design efforts toward the creation of a comprehensive signage system for the City’s parks, natural lands and trails.

The purpose of the project is twofold: (1) establish a plan that outlines the signage standards for enhancing the user experience, and then (2) create the design of specific signs for nine sites below:

  • Bonneville Shoreline Preserve
  • Bonneville Shoreline Trail
  • Ensign Peak Trail
  • Hidden Hollow Natural Area
  • H-Rock Open Space
  • Jordan River Parkway
  • Miller Park Bird Refuge
  • Parley’s Historic Nature Park
  • Wasatch Hollow Open Space

This is the first of three public meetings scheduled during winter/spring 2014 for the public to review progress and provide input on this project.

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to weigh in on the future of our flagship parks and open spaces!
