Sandy City has notified residents that they are planning on developing a large soccer complex and dog park in the open space zoned area known as quail hollow park just east of albian junior high near 90th south and 3000 east. To pay for the park sandy is going to sell some of the land and raise taxes. Local residents are very upset by this as the land is currently a natural park full of wild life with beautiful views of the valley. Why the city would spoil one of the few remaining open spaces for housing development and a soccer field and dog park baffles many of those of us who live near the park. Besides the termendous expense of such an undertaking it seems blatantly to disregard the environmental impacts such a park would have. The city seems to be rushing through the process before the public becomes aware of the plans. Currently the area is heavily used for biking, running, and hiking trails. The area is home to deer, fox, rabbits, snakes, and all sorts of other wildlife. The park trails run along little cottonwood creek. There are three public meetings to discuss the park. monday oct 29th at alta canyon rec center, Thursday Nov 1st at Albian Middle School, and Saturday Nov 3rd at Albian middle school.

My soon to be 2 year old completed this trail all on his own without needing to be carried, only times he stopped was for water. If he can do this trail, anyone can! It’s well maintained. Bug repellent, sunscreen and water may be helpful. Trail is mostly in sun.

Pretty trail for an evening walk. Took the family last night and there were lots of purple flowers lining the hillside as well as other flowers and blossoms. The stream right next to the trail once you get into the trees was dry yesterday after being full for months - the irrigation flow now follows the stream bed that borders the south side of the big, open park.

We really enjoyed Quail Trail today. A good part of the trail was still in snow with a few muddy sections and a good portion nice and dry packed dirt. With temps in the 60’s this week, I bet this trail is going to get pretty muddy in the next little while. While one of the trail signs pointed down, we took the left path that lead up since it looked less muddy. Gorgeous views! Kids (11, 9) loved it!
