Olympus Hills Park

Olympus Hills Park is a county park on the east side of the Salt Lake Valley. The Park is in the Olympus Cove area, just west of I215 (the belt route). You can access the park from the 4500 South exit on I215. On the north east corner of the park is a overpass that crosses I215 and Wasatch Boulevard.

Most of the park is covered with native vegetation including shrub oak, mountain mahogany and native grasses. The soil is sandy. The area was once covered with sand dunes. The park includes tennis courts, a baseball field, soccer field and ponds connected with a cascading stream. There is a cement walkway around the park with enough vertical relief to make for a brisk walk.
