Plan your visit to allow plenty of time to visit all The Park has to offer! Treasure seekers young and old will love the interactive feature, The Treasure House. It tells the story of mining in Utah through hands-on experiences. Dig for gemstones in Prospectors Pit, and then identify your rocks at the Assay Station. Pan for gold in the creek under the shady oaks. Choose a giant geode and help break it in our Geode Cracker! Enjoy these fun activities and don't miss pony rides, train rides, the Native American Village, visiting pioneer tradesmen, cooling off at Irrigation Station, shopping at The Gift Shop and ZCMI Mercantile Store, and much more! You can grab a bite to eat at the Huntsman Grill and you can also find other tasty treats like Brigham's Donuts at the Social Hall and soft serve ice cream at the Ice Cream Parlor.

Western Trail Rides are now available at This Is The Place! Come enjoy iconic views, from the top of a horse, as many of the early settlers did. Book your horseback trail ride here!
