This tiny city park sits on the east side of Cottonwood Heights sandwiched between Wasatch Blvd and the Wasatch Mountains. The park is mostly open lawn but is surrounded by coniferous trees on 3 sides. Up until several years ago the park was completely surrounded by trees but everything on the west side was removed in recent years. A cement path leads around the entire park for an easy walk.
This pinch point at the base of the mountains likely draws a good number of migrants which is why despite limited visits by birders there has been a good variety of birds seen here including plenty of migrants. The conifers provide great food sources for winter finches, and PINE SISKIN are reported here from time to time. EVENING GROSBEAK is perhaps the most notable find here, while various warblers, WESTERN TANAGER, LAZULI BUNTING, CASSIN'S FINCH, and TOWNSEND'S SOLITAIRE have all shown up. A GREAT HORNED OWL has also been heard here at night. Although this isn't a mega birding stop it is worth a quick stop if you are traveling between the two Cottonwood Canyons. The trees closest the parking lot can be birded in 5 minutes making for a a quick check. Just across the street and a block to the north is a UTA Park and Ride with a small "Wetland" with lots of cattails. RED-WINGED BLACKBIRD can usually be found here singing in the spring and summer.
From the intersection of Wasatch Blvd at 7000 S/E Fort Union (the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon), travel south on Wasatch Blvd for 1.4 miles till you reach the park on your left.
