SALT LAKE CITY — A longtime summer hotspot in Salt Lake City has become an abandoned eyesore.
The city is trying to determine what to do about it and is asking residents to take a survey.
The 17 acre park in Glendale was established in 1979 as the “Wild Wave.” It later changed its name to “Raging Waters” and then “Seven Peaks.”
Closed since 2018, the pools leak, much of the equipment is broken and unsafe, or no longer meets engineering codes. Vandalism and operator abandonment have created additional problems, such as fires, stripped electrical wiring and equipment theft.
The park’s condition leaves Salt Lake City wrestling with the difficult question of what to do next.
Before taking any action, residents are asked to weigh in on the matter by taking this survey.
