County of Salt Lake

(Chris Detrick | The Salt Lake Tribune) Blues, 7, a black lab, retrieves a frisbee for his owner Chad Calkins at Scott Avenue Park in Millcreek Thursday June 18, 2015. Salt Lake County has proposed that Scott Avenue Park be one of six off-leash dog parks in a one-year pilot study looking at the best way to provide this type of recreational amenity.


Salt Lake County parks and recreation officials are proposing a one-year pilot program that allows people to play with their dogs off leash at six county parks.

They are:

Canyon Rim Park, 3100 S. 3100 East

Big Cottonwood Regional Park, 4300 S. 1300 East

Mountain Man Park, 5000 S. 5200 West

Flight Park State Recreation Area at Point of the Mountain in Draper

Valley Center Park, 4013 S. 700 West

Scott Avenue Park, 3475 S. 800 East

After seeing what works and what doesn't at those sites, Recreation Director Martin Jensen said, the county would like to look at possibly integrating parks in cities valleywide into the program and developing more places where people and their dogs can play freely.
