At the end of every New Utah interview we like to ask our guests, “What is the one thing that you would tell someone visiting Utah they had to do before leaving?”
This is a special edition Utah’s One Thing. In March, Utah was graced with one of Ireland’s top podcaster’s, Peter Donegan, of The Sod Show. We haven’t been able to have him on the show yet, but he did send in a special request for the one thing someone must do before leaving Utah. Episode 45 we were able to do this one thing for him! (you can find him on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram)
Hidden in the middle of two buildings down 5th south and by 7th east in downtown Salt Lake, that if you blinked you would miss, is the Gilgal Sculptural Gardens. A beautiful outdoor space that is unique to Utah. If you’ve seen a sphinx head of Joseph Smith floating around the internet, this is where you will find it in real life.
Designed and created by Thomas Battersby Child, Jr. in the mid-twentieth century. The Gilgal Sculpture Garden contains 12 original sculptures, 70+ stones engraved with scriptures, poems, and literary texts.
It is open to the public seven days a week. There is no admission charge. Walking tour brochures are available at the garden. Visiting hours: April/September – 8 am to 8 pm October/March – 9 am to 5 pm Closed New Year Day; Thanksgiving; Christmas.
