Salt Lake City Parks & Public Lands has kicked-off the planning process for a unique natural area along Jordan River in the Glendale neighborhood. The Three Creeks Confluence project area is located where three major tributaries (Red Butte Creek, Emigration Creek, and Parleys Creek) join the Jordan River.
This project is focused on improving the natural environment and providing new user amenities to enhance community interaction with this local asset. Project goals include: Improving and expanding green infrastructure; Expanding and improving transportation options; Enhancing ecological values and improving water quality; and creating community connections to the river and interpret the site’s significance.

This project originated in the Seven Canyons Trust's 100 Years of Daylighting visioning document. We presented it to Salt Lake City in 2014 and received major support from City Council. The City has since championed the project, receiving $70,000 of CDBG funds for the community engagement and vision process, as well as $528,000 of CDBG funds and $24,000 from the Jordan River Commission's Jordan River Assistance Fund for the construction and implementation of the project.
