Types of Parks

Salt Lake County adopted a Master Plan in 2015 which defines the following types of County parks:

  • Regional Park, Class One – largest and most diverse multipurpose park type, ideally over 60 acres in size; serves several jurisdiction and has county-wide attraction; generally contains programmed or reserve-able amenities such as pavilions or athletic fields; variable amenities such as open-space, trails, playgrounds, sports courts; may be adjacent to a recreation center, swimming pool, disc golf course or skate park.
  • Regional Park, Class Two – smaller than a Class One Park, variable in size, serves more than one jurisdiction; contains programmed or reserve-able amenities such as pavilions or athletic fields; may be adjacent to a recreation center or swimming pool.
  • Regional Open Space Park – variable in size; largely undeveloped land valued for its aesthetic, ecological and passive recreational attributes; important for wildlife habitat, or watershed; includes trails and trailheads; contains few or no amenities or developed land.
  • Regional Trail – passes through or is adjacent to multiple jurisdictions; connected to other local and regional trails; county-wide attraction and use.
  • Neighborhood Park – small, no more than 15 acres in size; has no programmed or reserve-able amenities.

All County park facilities are wheelchair accessible. Due to the steep terrain at Big Cottonwood Regional Park and at the west end of Canyon Rim Park, a wheelchair user may need assistance.
