As part of a city tour we stopped at this park. We viewed the short movie and were able to walk around the park and take pictures. Good information about the LDS trek westward.

There are a few displays showing life in late 1800's Utah. Not bad if you're interested in that kind of thing. You can even visit the zoo, which is just across the street.
