Memory Grove Park is a great little park by Salt Lake City's beautiful Capitol Building. It may not house sport courts, but the small park allows guests to let their dog loose or enjoy a family picnic. It is a great escape to a cute area amidst downtown Salt Lake. The stream that runs through the park is also another calming bonus of the park.
