  • I love the history and the old train engine in pioneer park. The city renovated it and made it feel much safer, however it is still close to the soup kitchen for homeless people and so it tends to dra...  read more »
  • This park is not for children or families. Nor is it a place to drive by. Today a man walked into traffic. The large homeless population makes any public activity dangerous. 
  • Pioneer Park is conveniently located just a few blocks from the overflowing homeless shelter. It is normal to see people visibly doing drugs driving past this park. The only time I feel remotely safe ...  read more »
  • Nice park just a lot of homeless people there but still, it's a good park! I've been here a lot and for the most part it's a safe park but all it takes is a few bad people who most likely will be homeless that give the park a bad rep. and the fact that a lot of people are afraid of homeless people in general. I enjoy this park and have never been bothered here. But that's just my experience here. Not trying to say nothing bad can happen but that really goes for anywhere.
  • Twilight Concert Series here every summer! Such a great venue. I highly recommend attending. However, I'd avoid the VIP passes ($25 gets you a shorter line for booze that you can't take out of the area. Silly Utah laws). The cost for a typical ticket is $5, and some great bands, including Chet Faker, Grimes, Fitz and the Tantrums. The park itself is pretty nice, but does occasionally have a homeless problem.
  • This park is right in the middle of downtown Salt Lake. There are many events here such as concerts and farmers markets which are awesome. The park is spacious and a great location for these large community functions. However, I wouldn't recommend visiting the park often outside of those events. The park is in a rough area and is not a friendly place to visit outside of large events.
  • Lovely park. We watched twilight concerts here. It is very big and put together quite well. I loved the trees here and it was big enough for a stage and food trucks etc
  • Most fun during the farmers' market and craft fair Saturday's or during the twilight concert series but it's nice other days. The restrooms aren't great. The off leash dog area is small but functional. The playground was much enjoyed by my boys when they were smaller. And lots of great places to get lunch on three different sides of the park. The crime isn't what it was a decade ago. Very well patrolled.
