We took a local bike tour, and the guide took us to this park hidden behind a few houses. The history/story about the park was fascinating!! Very unusual!!

Hidden away and difficult to find, the Gilgal Gardens are a treasure to those of us who grew up in SL and to the new comers who perhaps will not find it quite as delightful.

Tucked in the backyard of a house in a residential neighborhood, this is a tiny oasis of inspiring writings, which have been inscribed on paving stones, accompanying a variety of sculptures, mostly stone. Prepare to be challenged.

It is very small but not crowded.... A nice place to relax right in the heart of town, and its free.

A very small garden and took 15 to 20 minutes to finish. Not much things to see but its pretty peaceful. As we didn't have much to do in the city, it was nice to visit this garden.

This small but fantastic sculpture garden is a must see. Incredible religious-themed creations using boulders.

If everybody's backyard was like Gilgal Gardens, this would be a much more interesting world. Not to mention surreal, thought-provoking, and peaceful. This was literally the backyard of a talented stone mason who was deeply inspired in his work by his Mormon religion - but...More

It has been our experience that the Garden's have hours but they are not very strict about them. Sometimes there is someone there to greet you and at other times there is not. However, the gate is almost always open and you... More
