LAYTON — Heritage Park, an urban park space, is now open to the public.
Located behind Best Western Plus Hotel, 798 W. 1425 North, and between 1425 South and Heritage Park Boulevard, the mini park boasts a lighted loop path, newly planted trees, a grass area and a small pond.
Now in phase one of its development, Heritage Park will eventually include benches, picnic tables and some awnings.
The park was a joint project between Layton and Davis County.
“These kind of projects are a real lot of fun,” Davis County Commission Chairman John Petroff Jr. said.
“This is a very exciting time for me,” Layton Mayor Steve Curtis said. “It’s paid for. The city’s philosophy is we don’t build anything until it’s paid for.”
Layton and Davis County shared funds, equipment and manpower for the new park. Dave Price, Layton City Parks and Recreation director, said utility easements were also secured from local businesses.
The park’s path connects area businesses and hotels. The path eventually will be extended to connect the Layton Hills Mall with the retail area south of Antelope Drive. The bottom of the park will act as a water detention basin when there is heavy storm runoff.
