South Salt Lake hosts open house on new park

 (Salt Lake Tribune) South Salt Lake wants residents to help the city shape its plans for a new park.

Last month, the City Council agreed to buy the former Woodrow Wilson Elementary campus, 2825 S. 200 East, from Granite School District.

In August, South Salt Lake sold a 4-acre park near the Jordan River, Workman Field, for $1.4 million to raise the bulk of the $2.3 million needed to buy the 9-acre Woodrow.

Residents are invited to attend an open house on plans for the new park, 6 p.m., Thursday, at City Hall, 220 E. Morris Ave. (2450 South). The city expects to replace a baseball diamond that was at Workman and add additional amenities.

"We know we need to replace the recreational facilities that we lost at Workman Field," South Salt Lake City Attorney David Carlson said. "This property's a lot bigger than Workman Field was."
