Update: This park has been taken down due to age and wear. The city said that the Wild West Park was loved to death! They are building a replacement park which will open in the spring of 2019. More info here.
We found a park similar to the Discovery Park in Pleasant Grove. You can find this park in West Jordan’s City Park–also known as Veteran’s Memorial Park–at 1985 W 7800 S, West Jordan. As we pulled into this city park, we circled around a large loop and passed 4 other playgrounds before reaching the Wild West Park. Each one we passed, my children would ask, “Is that it?” I wish I lived closer so we could try them all out.
The Wild West Park was so much fun! It has some Utah historical items such as a mural of the Bingham Canyon Mine, the trains meeting at Promontory Point, a stagecoach, and an old water tower. Other places are painted like the Old West with a bank and a jail. It has lots of places to climb, swing, crawl, and slide. You could spend a lot of time exploring here, and my kids had a great time playing hide and seek.
Some people worry about how there are two exits/entrances to this park. There is a front and back entrance, but I make it clear to my kids that we are all staying inside the fenced area until mom says otherwise because I don’t want them to try and run to the other playground by the bathrooms. This park is large and there are lots of places to hide and climb, so you will lose sight of your children sometimes. Wild West Park does have video surveillance if that helps you feel a little better. This is an amazing park and my boys love going!
