Salt Lake has a interesting network of Parks. The Jordan River Parkway runs through the center of the valley. The Dimple Dell area has a equestrian park. Salt Lake itself has several major parks including Liberty Park, Sugarhouse, Pioneer Park and other green spaces. Perhaps the most amazing of all parks is the short walk from downtown Salt Lake into the back country through City Creek.
