  • Was very difficult to find....It's in the middle of neighborhoods, emphasis on hood! It is incredibly small, like the size of a backyard...sculptures were interesting, but would I say take young kids,...  more »
  • This is otherworldly! I sometimes still have to pinch myself that a Mormon bishop was creating art like this in the 1950s and before. This is really unique. I give this 5 stars because it's unique and...  more »

  • This is an awesome piece of Utah history! This park was originally the back yard of Thomas Child's home, a masonry contractor. He started building the sculptures in 1947, when he was 57 years old. All of the sculptures are related to the beliefs and teachings of the LDS church, which Child belonged to. The garden becomes more interesting if you take the time to learn the background behind the park itself. The sculptures are very unique and interesting and I wish I could know what Thomas Child was thinking as he made each culpture. Everytime I have been there, the park has been especially windy so I would recommend bringing a jacket.
  • I found peace walking around, even though there was construction going around the park. I invite anyone to visit. There are summer and winter hours posted. I will go back during the spring and summer to capture different faces of the park.
  • Hidden piece of randomness. Great to see and visit. A definite must if you're in Salt Lake
  • A must see. Bizarre and fascinating, it's free to the public and is well maintained, quite and clean
  • Fun little park. I have been to SLC countless times and never knew about it. Load the website on your phone to use as a guide while you're there. I didn't and had a hard time wrapping my mind around what I was seeing.
