Join us to clean-up a problem section along the proposed Folsom Trail with Restore North Temple and the Fairpark Community Council!
The Folsom Trail easement at approximately 700 W South Temple, underneath the I-15 overpass, is plagued with trash. Please join us for a two hour clean-up of the area. Salt Lake City Police Department and Salt Lake County Health will be on-hand. Together we can make a difference in cleaning up the community, while learning about long-term efforts to uncover the waters of City Creek through the corridor adjacent to a mixed-use trail.

The Folsom Trail and daylighting of City Creek will create a direct, comfortable, and beautiful connection between underserved west-side neighborhoods to employment and services in Downtown Salt Lake City. Communities, separated by railroad tracks, two freeways, and a redeveloping industrial area, will be linked once again. By uncovering City Creek, the health of the community will be improved, alleviating water quality impairments and improving access to nature.
