Franklin Park Grand Opening!

I’m excited to announce the grand opening of Franklin Park will take place Thursday, June 29 at 11:00 am. Please join us as we celebrate with a ribbon cutting and kick off the event with the park’s first soccer game. All children in attendance will be able to play on the playground and enjoy the park’s new features. The park is located at 807 W 600 S in Provo. This new park is a great addition to the neighborhood and will serve the area for years to come.

Hope to see you there!

Franklin Park Details:

  1. Physical Address: 807 West 600 South
  2. History of the park: Franklin Park was purchased from the Harmon Family in the 1960’s. It has served as a materials handling area and nursery for the Parks and Recreation Department for decades. In the 1990’s the property was considered to be put up for sale for a condo development. The need for a park in the area was identified and it was not sold. Five soccer fields were lost in SW Provo when the school district purchased some property and Franklin Park will be able to replace 2 of them. The funding for the construction of Franklin Park was from CDBG funds and Park Impact fees. No additional appropriations are needed to maintain this park.
