About two dozen Capitol Hill residents Saturday joined Salt Lake Mayor Palmer DePaulis and Rep. Frank Pignanelli, D-Salt Lake City, to dedicate Warm Springs Park, where the pioneers plunged into the soothing spring waters.

The park on Wall Street and Third West had deteriorated in the past decade and was a haven for drug dealing and transients, said organizer Paul Dixon.The Capitol Hill Community Council worked with the mayor's office to secure a $200,000 community block grant for a parking lot, landscaping and a playground.

"All in all, we're happy with what we see here," Dixon told residents who turned out for the 10 a.m. dedication ceremony.
