In 2012 voters in Salt Lake County approved Proposition 1, a $47 million bond to create more open space throughout the county. Because of that bond 25 new open space areas and parks were approved and ready for construction.
In 2009 the county purchased a little more than nine acres where Cottonwood Creek and the Jordan River merge. The process has taken a few years for plans to be drawn and to have the public weigh-in, but construction has already started and the transformation has been remarkable. Before it was overgrown with weeds and invasive species of trees and today there is a picnic pavilion, walkable trails, and new trees planted throughout the space. Little Confluence is located on 4800 South, just west of Murray Boulevard in Taylorsville and is now complete!
