Discover the history of the Salt Lake Valley and participate in fun family-friendly activities here.

This Is The Place Heritage Park gets its name from when Brigham Young led a pioneer wagon company 1300 miles West to find a new place to settle. When the company arrived in the Salt Lake Valley, Brigham Young was sick, but he managed to sit up in his wagon and proclaimed, “This is the right place.” Among the monuments at This Is The Place Heritage Park stands a monument in the exact location where historians believe Brigham made this statement, a statement that decided history.

At the park, they offer horseback riding, and for the kids, pony rides. They also do demonstrations of several different trades, such as blacksmithing. In one area of the park called Native American Village, you can enter a Hogan, a traditional Navajo house. There, you can meet Native Americans that share their language and customs, including storytelling.

Children will have a blast experiencing what it was like to do pioneer chores and participating in crafts like leatherwork. They also have a train ride and a splash pad to help you stay cool in the summer. This Is The Place Heritage Park is a great place to create lasting memories during a visit to Utah.
