This Is The Place Heritage Park
This Is The FUN Place For Everyone!
This Is The Place Heritage Park is the Place for Summer Fun! And you don't have to like history to love The Park! There is something for every age to do. Step back in time and see the West as it was in the early settlement of Utah. Ride one of three trains, the Jupiter, Blackhawk or the 119, as they tour around the Park. Or enjoy a ride around the pond on the mini train. City kids will love riding ponies, meeting and petting farm animals and don't forget to try your skill at milking Clara Bell the Cow.
Guests love panning for gold. There is no excitement quite like finding a shiny nugget hiding amongst the silt and sand. "Set sail" on the Ship Brooklyn, a one-sixth replica of the original that tells the story of the expedition of pioneers who sailed from New York Harbor over 24,000 miles in search of a new home in the West.
Visit the Native American Village, which celebrates Utah's heritage before the arrival of the settlers. Authentic Navajo Hogan's and Shoshone teepees stand in a quiet circle on the hillside. Grind corn and make arrowhead necklaces.
Interact with a blacksmith, tinsmith, and saddle maker and don't forget to purchase some snake oil from Dr. Quackenbush! Try your hand at some old-fashioned pioneer chores, or at spinning and carding wool. And there's endless old-fashioned fun from the bucket brigade to the Candy Cannon that shoots salt-water taffy during special events. The streets are alive with a variety of musical performers, and be on the lookout for a train robbery!
Brand new Summer 2013 is Irrigation Station splash pad! Cool off and learn why the Salt Lake Valley "blossomed as a rose!"
The Gift Shop at The Visitor Center is one of the premier destination shopping experiences in Salt Lake City. And the ZCMI Mercantile is filled with sweets from yesteryear and loads of goodies. Huntsman Hotel is home to Huntsman Grill which serves great grub daily, there's an old fashioned ice cream shop with soft serve and flavor burst cones, and Brigham's Donuts are cooked fresh everyday! A little bit of sugary heaven!
Visit the Mormon Battalion Museum, The Stoddard Gallery and see the iconic Monument that was erected under the supervision of a committee composed of Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Protestant, Jewish and Latter-day Saint representatives. Visit the Walk of Pioneer Faiths honoring early religious groups and leaders who contributed to the religious diversity of our great community.
