Salt Lake City is blessed with numerous large city parks, and Liberty Park is one of the favorites. Salt Lake's oldest park features the Tracy Aviary, the Chase Home Museum, several playgrounds, a large pond, a swimming pool and tennis complex, and carnival rides in the summer on its eight square city blocks. The city's biggest Pioneer Day celebration (July 24), and running races dot a busy summer schedule annually. Kids will love clambering on the fountain that represents the seven major canyons of the Wasatch Front.

This is a very pleasant urban park, popular with families. It contains an enjoyable aviary, a small amusement ride area, and a little folk art museum (this last contains all recent items, nothing really historic). It's a little time consuming to reach via bus, but worth the jaunt.
