Fitts Park Community Garden

In the heart of South Salt Lake, nestled between cozy homes and bustling streets, lies a hidden gem known as the Fitts Park Community Garden. The garden opened in 2022, as a labor of love from the community and in partnership with South Salt Lake City. Residents, young and old, come together in this sanctuary, tending to 38 plots. Gardeners volunteer their time to care for a “public pick” area outside of the garden fence, providing delicious fresh produce for passersby. A neighbor cares for the free little library, regularly restocking it with fresh books for children and adults alike. In the words of a Fitts Park Community gardener, “this garden is more than just a patch of land—it's a haven of shared dreams, a sanctuary for growth, and a testament to the enduring power of nature to nurture both the earth and the human spirit.”

The garden lies just south of Fitts Park, on the corner of Front Avenue and 400 East.
