Also called Scott Avenue Park this tiny urban park is dominated by open grass, but surrounded by tall trees on the north, west, and south sides. The large deciduous trees are decades old in this area. To the east is a large nursery (Millcreek Gardens). In the northeast corner a small pond created by Mill Creek adds a bit of water to the park, with some riparian habitat near the parking area.
A handful of checklists show the typical urban far at this mid city location. The riparian and wet areas here have turned up SONG SPARROW, RED-WINGED BLACKBIRD, YELLOW WARBLER, and notably MARSH WREN and SPOTTED SANDPIPER. BARN SWALLOW might be seen overhead, while a decent sized flock of AMERICAN CROWS have been seen here. With other larger parks and better habitat nearby this location rarely gets visited--but if you live nearby it might make a worth while after or before work stop.
From the intersection of 3300 South and 700 East in South Salt Lake, go south on 700 East for 2. miles. Turn left onto Scott Avenue and travel .2 miles until you reach the park on your right.
