Salt Lake City is a big city and plenty left to discover even if it isn’t in the city. Try going in all directions of Salt Lake; you’ll find something new. Last time, we mention places in the city or near the city center, but this time is all about the south side of Salt Lake.
The south side has plenty to offer for both you and your family. Utah is known for their national parks and being a state of the outdoors, which is why I’ve chosen five places you can explore and have a great time near or in South Salt Lake City. Yes, some of these places are outdoorsy.
The Tracy Aviary
Enjoy bird watching while getting the chance to experience interacting with them by feeding them. The Tracy Aviary offers exhibits and shows/encounters for you to see the birds up close. They even have events planned for you to participate in such as singing with the birds or bird sketching and journaling. It’s an excellent place for those who love nature and birds and for good family time.
Parks are an excellent place for exercise and for the family fun that comes from going to a picnic or barbecue at the park. Liberty Park is one of the oldest parks that has a pond, a lake, walkways, and sports areas to play tennis and basketball. There is plenty to do here and is in the same area as The Tracy Park, where you can see the birds.
Yes, another park but, the reason I picked this park in specific is that it has a skate park. The world is pretty much your skate park, but it’s nice to know there is a designated area for the skaters to hang, skate and compete with each other. Great place if you have children who are skaters or looking to start skating. I know I would have like to have had one near me when growing up.
The Wairhouse Trampoline Park
We don’t get to jump around all the time as adults, but there is a place which allows you to be free and have fun even if you do have children. Your kids can have fun but so can you. There’s more to jumping, play basketball with the advantage of a higher leap or having more room to travel with the ball. You can also join your kids in crawling through the playground or somersaulting and flipping through the park. Perfect for stretching.
Who loves bowling? Get a group of friends and have a fun, hang-out. Some friendly competition is good to have around plus you create opportunities to bond with friends and family. Bowling is perfect for family fun night or just a friends night out. It relieves the stress and makes room for relaxation.
