Bike/pedestrian path nears completion.
The development of Parley’s Trail over the past 16 years has led to a convenient and scenic way for bikers and pedestrians to traverse the Salt Lake Valley. The goal of Parley’s Trail is to create a multi-use, east-west linking trail which connects the Bonneville Shoreline Trail and the Provo-Jordan River Parkway. This trail will connect a variety of neighborhoods along the Salt Lake Valley and will offer a myriad of communal, business and natural resources. While parts of this extensive trail are already complete still segments remain in the development stage.
The Tanner Park to Sugar House Park segment is scheduled for completion by mid-summer. This section will offer 1.2 miles of trail and include two pedestrian bridges. This segment of Parley’s Trail will connect the Bonneville Shoreline Trail and Sugar House Park, thus allowing bikers and pedestrians to seamlessly commute through the eastern part of the trail without having to travel on congested streets.
Next, trail development will continue west through Sugar House. Upon completion, Parley’s Trail will enable convenient access to neighborhoods, parks and businesses across its eight-mile-long path. – JB
