The monument and fountain were nice to see. The area is quite small but was worth the stop to have a short walk. It was quite peaceful.

It is a very beautiful little park that also holds Brigham Young's grave and part of his family's graves too. I love going to there to reflect on his life and the legacy he left behind here in Utah.

Not really a major destination - but a part of a complete visit to Temple Square. Worth seeing - but not the goal in and of itself!
