Salt Lake City: Three Creeks

  • Three Creeks Pocket Park 819 West 1300 South Salt Lake City, UT, 84104 United States (map)

Join the Seven Canyons Trust and Jane Jacobs Walk for a walking conversation to explore the Three Creeks Confluence, an effort to uncover 200 feet of the combined confluence of Red Butte, Emigration, and Parley’s Creeks in Salt Lake City.

The walk will begin at the Three Creeks Pocket Park, located at 1300 S 815 W. Participants will learn about the origins of the project from the Seven Canyon Trust’s vision document, 100 Years of Daylighting. Explore Where the Waters Meet by local artists, Wendy Wischer and John Mack. The walk will continue onto the linear urban intervention, along 1300 South, meant to visually represent the waters of the three creeks. Ending the walk at the Three Creeks Confluence project site, participants will learn about the project’s progress from former District 2 Councilmember Kyle LaMalfa, whom helped championed the idea and pushed it further towards completion. Finally, the Salt Lake City Division of Parks and Public Lands will discuss the design vision for the area and its upcoming construction.

The Three Creeks Confluence is the underground convergence of three urban creeks – Red Butte, Emigration, and Parley's Creeks – and the Jordan River. This project began as the first phase and centerpiece of the award-winning visioning document, 100 Years of Daylighting. The Seven Canyons Trust has successfully partnered with Salt Lake City and the Jordan River Commission to bring this project from a concept to a reality to uncover this 200-foot stretch of creek.
