  • One could easily spend the day walking back through time. The park has several historical buildings relocated here and many monuments dedicated to the early settlers. A must see for history buffs. 
  • This is the Place Heritage Park is fun for people who are interested in the tour that the Mormons have made at that time to escape the persecution in the East of the US. It is a nice and quiet park where not a whole lot spectacular falls.

  • Beautiful setting set on the hillside looking west over Salt Lake City. The grounds were beautifully kept and provided a wonderful way to highlight the early pioneers and the settling of the area. Unf...  read more »
  • TAKE A TRAIL RIDE. . .it is worth every penny! James & Taylor were totally professional, lots of fun and very helpful. Taylor lead our trail ride, for my daughter's 7th birthday, and we had an incredible time on our one hour ride. The trail and views are gorgeous! This is an amazing addition to This is the Place Heritage Park. We look forward to future trail rides and there is no doubt we will return again and again!
  • My children all enjoyed the free day with free ice cream. I would have given more stars if they had stayed open just a little longer than 5pm. My children were upset they didn't get to see all that it had to offer. We would have tried to arrive earlier but based on balances schedules for my family of 7 it was the best we could do. I also wish they had provided maps at the beginning of the park. This would have made it easier to manage our time and prioritize our time given we did have limited time. Oh and also I was disappointed that they closed the bathrooms as we were exiting the park, this was frustrating with a six year old the couldn't hold it. Overall we enjoyed the pony rides, the petting zoo, seeing small animals, education about Utah history etc.. We will for sure be back.
  • Extremely fun with many renovation projects and buildings. Loved how it opens right up to the north into wild territory. Very cool nostalgic feel. Great for Wedding receptions, parties, or just plain fun. Well taken care of.
  • Good historical place to visit with the kids. Our kids loved it, and they're improving and building up the park all of the time. It's pricey though.
  • Going here is like stepping back in time. It's an amazing place to visit! My only issue is admission is kind of steep and then there are some optional extra costs. And we didn't get to do our 3 crafts because they ran out. But other than that this place is amazing! I would definitely recommend trying the donut shop!
