Why We Exist
More than 60 percent of Utah’s drinking water is used on outdoor landscapes—and with water shortages expected as early as 2040, changing the way landscaping is done in Utah is becoming increasingly important. At Conservation Garden Park, we model the best use of water in Utah landscapes and empower communities to make the most of our shared water resources. Jordan Valley Water's Conservation Garden Park showcases landscapes suited for Utah's unique climate that are not only beautiful and easier to maintain, but are also designed to efficiently use water. Here you learn how simple changes can result in big water savings.
Why We Need to Conserve Water
Utah’s population is expected to double by 2060, but our water supply won’t. Data from the Utah Division of Water Resources indicates that unless progress is made in water conservation and new sources are developed, Utah will not have enough water to meet expected demands. Water conservation is a vital first step to ensure that Utah’s water supply will be able to support our own children and grandchildren into the future.
What Will I See During My Visit?
With more than 8 acres of exhibits, pathways and plants, Conservation Garden Park is Salt Lake County’s premier destination for learning about Utah’s unique climate and the role each of us can play in protecting our water supply. During your visit take a walk through a water pipe, explore a full-scale Localscape, see thousands of Utah-friendly plants, and learn how create and maintain your own water-efficient landscape.
