Hidden Hollow Park
If its name didn’t tip you off, Hidden Hollow is a beautiful, somewhat secret preserve in the north end of Sugar House. This quiet getaway provides visitors with a break from the fast-moving city around it while still staying close to Sugar House’s many amenities. It’s only half an acre in size, but it doesn’t lack features including walking paths, benches, and a quiet creek running along the edge. Better still, if you are looking for something more high energy, you can walk right down the road to Sugar House Park (above).
