This fall season, spend an afternoon surrounded by golden orange trees in one of Sugar House’s best-kept secrets, Fairmont Park.
Located at 1040 E. Sugarmont Dr. (2225 S.), Fairmont Park is a 15-minute walk from Westminster.
“I like it because it’s diverse,” said Trayven Call, 21-year-old theatre major who said he regularly visits the park.
Fairmont Park’s features include tennis courts, sand volleyball, soccer and recreational fields, as well as a skate park.
Call said his favorite activities at the park include climbing trees and watching ducks.
“Parks are awesome,” Call said. “I think they are just a good way to get out of the house and be recreational.”
With fall in full swing, the leaves have begun to change, and some students are making it a priority to see it outside of campus.
Elaine Sheehan, 19-year-old sophomore double majoring in English and Spanish, said she enjoys going outside with friends, especially in fall.
“I’ve been [at Fairmont Park] four or five times with friends,” she said. “I love it when the leaves start to change.”
Sheehan had a few words of advice to those who have not been able to go to a park this season: “Go out and enjoy fall while it lasts, before we can’t go outside because of stupid snow.”
