Sandy Mayor Requests Input On Future Of Quail Hollow Park

SANDY, Utah – Officials have asked people living in Sandy to weigh in on what should happen to a large area of undeveloped trails.

Mayor Kurt Bradburn has asked citizens to show up at public meetings next week to discuss what they would like to see at Quail Hollow Park. There are walking and biking trails through the area, but no developed areas.

A master plan for the park the city commissioned more than a decade ago called for an off-lease dog park, playing fields, and mountain bike trails. The plan was shelved years ago. Bradburn said he wants to know if people still want to see changes like that at the park.

“We don’t have anything set in stone. This is really just kind of finding out what people do want to see there,” he said. “This is one of those cases where it’s ripe for public input and discussion on the direction we should head.”

A post on the city’s Facebook page brought mixed opinions. Some people said they would love to see a dog park or playing fields. Others said they like the park just the way it is.

“There are plenty of parks, soccer fields, tennis courts around here. This is one of the few areas where we can really just get away and go for a peaceful walk,” said Chris Jones.

Jones walked his two dogs through the park Friday afternoon. He stopped to chat with other dog owners about the possible changes.

“It’d be nicer if it stayed the old way, but I don’t know. Growth is coming,” Colleen Garside said.

Trail runner Landon Allred said he does not want to see any development, especially a dog park. He was afraid that could lead to more dog waste along the trails.

“I run three times a week. One or two bags every time,” Allred said. “I do this enough that I don’t want to be doing more of picking up dog poop on every run.”

The city scheduled three public meetings to get input about possible changes at the park. The meetings will be:

  • Monday, Oct 29 at 7:30 p.m. at Alta Canyon Rec Center
  • Thursday, Nov. 1 at 7:00 PM at Albion Middle School
  • Saturday, Nov. 3 at 10:00 AM at Albion Middle School

Bradburn said the feedback from those meetings will give the city some guidance on how to proceed on the park. If most people want to see the park remain as it is, they may decide to make some smaller improvements like adding restrooms.
