Tunnel Springs Park

North Salt Lake, UT

To create the 11-acre Tunnel Springs Park, Hughes updated the Bonneville Shoreline trailhead, created horse trailer parking, a soccer field, a playground, two tennis courts, a parking lot, a shade structure and restroom facilities. Working around a natural spring and sulfuric hot pots posed a challenge. To handle the high water table, Hughes installed a French drain that constantly diverts water from the park so that it can be used for community activities.
