Parley's Creek -- Salt Lake County, Utah
(Sugarhouse Park)

Sugarhouse Park was the former location of the Utah Territorial Prison (1853 to 1896)
and Utah State Prison (1896 to 1951).

Parley's Creek was probably used as a source of drinking water at its upper end,
and as a sewer drain here at the lower end, where this photo was taken.

The area has been restored to its natural beauty since the old prison was demolished.
