Brigham Young Historic Park

Brigham Young Historic Park

Salt Lake City, Utah
Scope: Landscape Architecture

The Brigham Young Historic Park design focuses on the interpretation of early settlers using water from City Creek to establish the downtown area of Salt Lake Valley. It provides visitors an opportunity to enjoy flowing water, shade trees, flowering shrubs, sandstone walls, historic features, and a dramatic remembrance of an earlier era. Rock gardens nestled into the slopes of the park provide a dramatic backdrop to the waterwheel that symbolizes the industrial efforts of the early settlers. In addition, the park includes life-size bronze statues, by artist Peter Fillerup depicting men, women and children working and playing in harmony with the water and landscape.
