A small sculpture park where the motif is Mormonism, Gilgal [749 500 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84102] is an interesting sight for visitors. We were driving down a quiet block and blew right by it. I saw zero sign that it existed in what looked like a residential area. With faith in my GPS, we circled around again, still seeing nothing, decided to park, get out, and investigate. The GPS showed that there was a very narrow path leading into the small park. Upon walking to its location we saw the tiny sign, there was a mother and child who just walked out.
It was very fascinating to gain perspective about this religion, which is mysterious to me, through the sculptures.
The sculpture which made the biggest impression was the sphinx which had a human face.
We ended up seeing this image which must have cultural significance throughout the city. Other sculptures had artifacts and scripture.
There were remnants of a garden and the tail end of the rose season, we caught one last beautiful blossom.
The walk about the park took only a few minutes, but I think it was very interesting and worth it to be exposed to the culture of the region.
