Salt Lake City is a beautiful town. There are broad, straight streets laid out in perfectly sensible grids. In the downtown area, there are beautiful buildings erected by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, AKA, the Mormons. The city is clean and well-kept, with plenty of small squares and neighborhood parks. Of course, Utah has plenty of mountains, and the surrounding views are gorgeous, but Salt Lake City itself is in a basin, so the city itself is actually fairly flat, which makes it a very walkable city.
In a place laid out so logically, it makes sense that the largest dog park in the county would also be laid out well. And that is exactly the case. The West Jordan Dog Park is not fancy but it is very well laid out. The park is over four acres with three fenced-in off-leash areas. One for small dogs and two for large dogs. The small dog enclosure and one of the large enclosures are covered in grass and has trees. The third enclosure is gravel and is meant for a dog to be able to run without any barriers.
All three of the parks have benches and water fountains for both people and puppies. Each of the parks comes equipped with poop bags and trash cans. There is a dog washing station next to the parking lot. Be advised that the water fountain and the dog washing station are only operational from the late spring to the late fall to avoid pipe damage during the coldest part of the year.
The West Jordan Dog Park is, sensibly enough, adjacent to the Salt Lake County animal shelter. It has a large parking lot and some walking paths, however, the park doesn't have any playground equipment, a basketball court, or softball diamond. The park is truly dedicated to providing a place for dogs, and it does that very well.
