Red Butte Gardens is a little outdoor mecca... a great place to go on walks, nature hikes, take the kids to play, etc and so forth. They often have educational exhibits for the kids to learn about nature and animals. They also have a summer concert series where you can go catch some great tunes in an outdoor setting. It's beautifully maintained, and has a fantastic view of the valley. All in all, it's a good time for all.
