This is the Place

This is the Place Heritage Park in Salt Lake City celebrates Utah's pioneer heritage. The park is named for the famous statement given by Brigham Young when he first entered the Salt Lake Valley on July 24th, 1847.

The Park is a major attraction during Utah's Pioneer Day festival which takes place on the 24th of Julya State Holiday.

The Park is at the base of Emigration Canyon. Emigration Canyon was first opened by the Donnor Party on their ill fated trip to California. The canyon was the route for many pioneers, The Pony Express and the Transcontinental Telegraph which was completed in Salt Lake on October 24, 1861.

The Park is Near Utah's Hogle Zoo
