S. Salt Lake residents should have a new park after holidays

(South Salt Lake Journal) In the week before Christmas South Salt Lake City officials finalized the deal to purchase the property it plans to use as a park.

The city bought the former Woodrow Wilson Elementary School building site, located at 2825 South 200 East, from the Granite School District for around $2.5 million. Plans are to turn the former school and the surrounding property into a recreational area for residents.

Now city officials are asking for residents to provide suggestions and constructive feedback about how the property should be used.

“We want this to be a well-used community park,” said South Salt Lake City Planner Mike Florence. “One thing South Salt Lake lacks is a lot of open space for our citizens.”

City leaders held an open house meeting Dec. 10 at the South Salt Lake City Hall in the council chambers to get resident input on possible uses for the park.

“We’ll take their top choices, go through those and see what’s feasible financially,” Florence said.
