The year 2010 marked an upgrade in the look of Sugar House Park, as new signs sprouted in the park in two phases.
In the first phase of the project, completed last April, the Park Authority renamed the Park’s picnic pavilions, replacing the old directional names. The new pavilion names, with the old ones in parentheses, are: Fabian Lakeside Pavilion (Lake Terrace), Sego Lily Pavilion (West Hill Terrace), Mt. Olympus Pavilion (East Hill Terrace), Sugar Beet Pavilion (Southeast Terrace), Hidden Grove Pavilion (Northeast Terrace), Parley’s Creek Pavilion (Central Terrace), and Big Field Pavilion (Northwest Terrace). For background on the new names, see the article on the Park Info tab of the website.
Then, this winter, the Park Authority has all but completed the second phase, in which new park rules signs, directional signs, and traffic and regulation signs were installed. The old and outdated signs, which had been in the park for years, have been removed.
In order to protect its investment in these signs, the Park Authority is stressing its rule prohibiting the posting of personal event signs or fliers on park structures, particularly the new signs and the recently painted light poles. The taping of signs has caused damage to these structures, and the Park Authority asks reservation holders to use real estate- or campaign-type signs if they feel the need to direct visitors to their event.
The Park Authority is grateful to Salt Lake City, which has appropriated $30,000 from its Capital Improvement Program (CIP) to help fund the signage project.
