This is a relatively out of the way little park. It has a number of stone statues and monuments, all with a Mormon theme. Mostly it's worth seeing as a curiosity.

Interesting sculptures and descriptions of each. If you are in the area and have some spare time it is worth seeing but not a must see.

We took a local bike tour, and the guide took us to this park hidden behind a few houses. The history/story about the park was fascinating!! Very unusual!!

Hidden away and difficult to find, the Gilgal Gardens are a treasure to those of us who grew up in SL and to the new comers who perhaps will not find it quite as delightful.

Tucked in the backyard of a house in a residential neighborhood, this is a tiny oasis of inspiring writings, which have been inscribed on paving stones, accompanying a variety of sculptures, mostly stone. Prepare to be challenged.
