The picturesque Bonneville Shoreline Trail is a multi-use trail that navigates across the banks of the historic Bonneville lake. Used by a number of hiking and biking enthusiasts, the hiking path also passes through the buzzing Wasatch Front, a popular spot for adventure lovers. While some parts of the trail route are well marked, some are not properly developed. The Salt Lake City part of the trail covers an approximate distance of 20 miles (32.18 kilometers) and traverses through the mighty Wasatch mountain ranges. The surprise bends and turns provide challenging conditions to mountain bikers, runners and hiking enthusiasts.

This local garden is famous for its mix of cultural heritage captured in several statues, along with quotes from Rousseau, Emerson and the Bible. Gilgal Gardens is part of (and pokes fun at) Utah cultural history, although the locals scratch their heads in wonder at some of the chosen subject matter. The garden will provide visitors with a nice stroll and will certainly arouse curiosity in all who take the time to look around. The park is open daily from 9a until dusk.

One of the city's largest parks, the Sugar House Park is a spacious retreat and is also amongst the prettiest parks to see, in any season. Several large pavilions are available for booking, but call early since they tend to go fast. There is a creek running through the park, which feeds into a duck pond on the west end. Stop by for a jog around the paved roads, or walk around the trail that lines the park's outer edge. Or, simply lie in the grass and watch the many squirrels.

This beautiful park, dedicated to the veterans of Utah, is refreshingly quiet and serene. The towering trees throughout and the Harbor of Beauty pond create a feeling of peacefulness for those who just want a quiet, meditative walk in the park. On the east bank is the Freedom Trail. On the west, the paved path goes all the way up to City Creek Canyon. The park is dog-friendly as long as pets are leashed—however, owners may unleash dogs in the canyon.
