Many of your have heard about the Pioneer Park Coalition’s $300,000 donation to Salt Lake City for Pioneer Park improvements. If you haven’t, you can read more about the money we have committed so far here.
This donation is going directly to this winter’s planned improvements for Pioneer Park, specifically the lighted walkway around a new multi-use sports field.
We are excited and proud that we have been about to accomplish an incredible amount in just three short years. You have helped us create the momentum! But we know that this $300k is just a drop in the bucket. We rely on continued membership and donations to continue to build our vision of a public-private partnership of a park that is the crowned jewel of Salt Lake City.

We are modeling our vision for the park off other major cities who have accomplished this. Namely, Bryant Park in New York City and Millennium Park in Chicago. You can read more about our vision in a previous post here.
2017 has been a huge year for our Salt Lake City neighborhood. Think about it. Newspaper headlines dominated by our neighborhood. Elected officials courageously tackling what was previously thought to be a quagmire. Homeless services significantly transforming with the development of three new resource centers and the closure of the downtown shelter. Operation Rio Grande dramatically changing the culture and feel of what has been the city’s most crime-ridden neighborhood. A Medicaid waiver helping thousands of needy Utahns. And major upgrades slated for the park itself this winter.
Again, we are amazed by what we have done in such a short time. We plan to continue our vision in the coming year, working towards a safe, inclusive neighborhood that is inviting to all, 24/7.
Will you please help now by donating to the PPC before year’s end? All donations are fully tax deductible!
