Step back in time and experience the FUN of the Old West. Visit the historic Village, ride trains, ponies and Big Red, the vintage fire engine. Hear the stories of the ancients at the Native American Village. Visit Brigham’s Donut Shop and our Gift Shop is one of Utah’s best! You can also book a wedding, family reunion or corporate event at the Park. This Is the Summer Fun Place for Everyone!
The 430-acre This Is The Place Heritage Park is home to the famous This Is The Place Monument, marking the entrance into the Salt Lake Valley of the first Mormon pioneers in 1847, and Heritage Village, where “hands-on” learning about pioneer life is the order of the day.
In more than 40 Village homes, shops and outbuildings – many of them original structures – costumed “interpreters” demonstrate the crafts, trades and skills of frontier life. Among the Park’s offerings are replica trains, pony rides, petting corral and a host of crafts and activities for children and youth.
Spend a couple of hours or an entire day in pioneer Utah, an experience unlike any other.
The train runs everyday from 9am-5pm. Visit www.thisistheplace.org or call 801.582.1847 for more information.
Village is Open Monday-Saturday: 9am to 5pm and Sunday (limited program): 9am-5pm.
