Small, a few interesting sculptures - mostly stones with carved scriptures. Address is 749 East 500 South - there's a sign on the fence.

It's a little hard to find because it's in the middle of a neighborhood. There is no dedicated parking for it, but you can find parking on the street. The sculptures were a little weird, but neat. It is definitely something different. The garden contains...More

This hidden treasure is an amazing find for those who can find it tucked away in the block of 500 South east of 700 east street. Go there a prepare to see one man's knowledge transferred into stone carvings.

This is truly an off the beaten path place! The history, the sculptures, the location all are unusual and interesting. This place is hidden in a residential area and can be missed if not adamant in finding it! It was a peaceful and calm visit...More

Definitely a place, which is not on the list of all the big companies doing SLC day tours. We had a guide from the Salt lake bicycle Tours company, who showed us all the small place as well. tiny but worth to visit

I first visited Gilgal 45 years ago. It is so well hidden that you have to know that it is there to be able to find it. It is a sculpture garden with cryptic sculptures with cryptic inscriptions. I've always found it fascinating. Few people...More

A strange part of Utah culture. This place is easy to miss since the entrance is tiny. It's definitely worth a stop as a local curiosity.

If you have time, (even though I felt SLC was not a big city compared to the other cities I've visited) check this place out! It was interesting and great for a picture surrounded by flowers and green scenery!

We had hoped to see this, but our GPS brought us to a very small fenced in green area.We circled the block a couple times and still couldn't find it.

It's a (possibly) one-acre garden with rocks and scripture. I appreciated the scripture, but nothing else was aesthetically pleasing. I would skip if short on time....

It has been our experience that the Garden's have hours but they are not very strict about them. Sometimes there is someone there to greet you and at other times there is not. However, the gate is almost always open and you... More
