Sugar House Park, also known as Sugarhouse Park, is located between I-80, 2100 South, 1300 East, and 1700 East in the Sugar House neighborhood of Salt Lake City, Utah, United States. The 110-acre (45 ha) park is at the heart of the Sugar House neighborhood. It was the site of a fireworks show and concert every Independence Day (July 4), but the event was discontinued in 2018 due to environmental, logistical, and financial reasons. It is a popular sledding location in the winter.

The park was the location of Sugar House Prison, Utah's first state prison, until 1951 when the current prison was opened in Draper.

  • Sugar House Park is a beautifully maintained park with several pavilions for group gatherings, basketball courts, and spacious pavement and paths for walkers, runners, cyclists, and motorists to safely get past each other. There are a few benches scattered around the park to enjoy some views and plenty of open, grassy areas for sports activities or a nice picnic. It's an amazingly quiet and peaceful location in the middle of a big city. It was designed particularly well to abate the noise from I-80 which runs along the south side of the park, and a couple of the pavilion areas have restroom facilities available.
  • Of all the years I have known and loved this park, it was today's visit that finally solidified the need to perform my civic duty and review the damn place. After all we've been through? Please forgive me Sugar House.Sugar House Park often gets compared to Liberty Park. This makes sense as they are both two of the larger parks in the city, they're only 2 miles away
