Join us in celebrating the new sections of Parley’s Trail along with The Draw, an artistic passageway under 1300 East! Designed by world renowned environmental artist, Patricia Johanson, The Draw is intended as a beautiful public space with historical and cultural elements. It will also serve as a safe crossing of 1300 East connecting Sugar House Park with the Sugar House Business District. It is a crucial element of Parley’s Trail, which will provide an 8 mile east-west link for the Salt Lake Valley. The trail is now completed from 1700 East to 1300 East in Sugar House Park, and from McClelland Street (1050 East) to State Street alongside the S-Line Streetcar. This totals 2.5 miles of paved shared use trail connecting homes, businesses, and parks in our
The ribbon cutting ceremony for The Draw starts at 10:30am and includes a few speakers. The Jane Jacobs Walk will follow and we will be some of the first people to walk through the tunnel under 1300 East. After this, we will tour the proposed route of Parley’s Trail in the Sugar House Business District. Lastly, we will explore the trail alongside the SLine Streetcar to 700 East, where we will turn and walk back. Parley’s Rails Trails and Tunnels Coalition, a nonprofit organization, will lead the walk and provide information and talking points along the way. We welcome open discussion in the form of questions, comments, concerns, and recommendations for the trail and The Draw.
