Lake Park is made up of Stonebridge Golf Course, undeveloped fields, and a business park. There are numerous small "lakes" or ponds, connected by various canals. As of the winter of 2013-2014 there seems to be a bit of development of the undeveloped sections so the landscape may change drastically in the coming years.
Lake Park has become a popular winter birding destination in Salt Lake County for gulls and waterfowl from November through April. Because most of the property is private birding can be difficult, but there are a couple of primary areas to look for things. You can drive most of the roads, and pull off into parking lots to scan some fields and ponds. You can also exit your vehicle and walk where there are sidewalks. Please be mindful of no trespassing signs. The main pond to the south of the Stonebridge Golf Cours Club House is often the center of birding here. When the water is open various waterbirds may be present. When frozen, or partially frozen, gulls often use it to roost. The west pond near 5600 West, just south of Target has been a great spot for close viewing of gulls when the water is open. In November 2013 a PACIFIC LOON spent a number of days here. Between the two ponds a hefty list of rare gulls have been recorded, including: WESTERN, GLAUCOUS-WINGED, GLAUCOUS, LESSER BLACK-BACKED, MEW, and THAYER'S GULLS. The golf course grounds and fields between provide great feeding sites for large flocks of Canada Geese, sometimes numbering in the 1,000's. CACKLING, GREATER WHITE-FRONTED, ROSS'S, and SNOW GOOSE are all recorded almost annually here with the mix.
From SR-201 you can reach the park from the west at 5600 West, or the east at 4000 West/Bangerter Highway. Take either road south from SR-201 till you reach Lake Park Blvd. From Bangerter turn right onto Lake Park Blvd, and from 5600 West turn left.
