  • Where all the homeless gather. I think it puts a bad light on the city as it is the first look people are welcomed with when arriving here. 
  • Saturday Farmer's Markets are really fun. Lots of kids, dogs, artisans, buskers, and farmers. Food stalls have a good variety and are usually very good. Local bands are featured attractions. Great way...  more »
  • Pioneer Park is a homeless camp. I was shocked to see all the tents, drug use and drinking in plain sight. With that said I was surprised to see absolutely no sign of before mentioned when the farmers...  more »

  • I've been to better parks. This one's pretty and mid-sized. Definitely a good place for the market on Saturdays, but homeless people camp there the rest of the week and live there pretty permanently. Not a very safe place.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Nice park, kind of sketchy with all the homeless around. Definitely don't go after dark, unless it's for the Twilight Concerts.
