Raging Waters which has changed names to Raging Waters and later Seven Peaks is in a state of serious disrepair.
Closed since 2018, the pools leak, much of the equipment is broken and unsafe, or no longer meet 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.
The Glendale Community Council hosted an onsite visioning conversation on October 31, 2020. For those who missed the meeting, you can still participate. Here's how you can participate.
Step 1: Review Our Draft Scenarios
We've created some draft scenarios to illustrate all of the possibilities for the site. Please note, these are not fully formed ideas nor are they reflective of any solid plan for the site. Rather, we created them as a way of showcasing the many ideas that have been floated for the Raging Waters property.
As you review them, we recommend that you ask yourself four questions:
1) Which of the scenarios is most cost-effective and financially feasible? You may define this in any way that you like.
2) Which of the scenarios is best for the many children and families in our neighborhood?
3) Which of the scenarios is most accessible to people with disabilities, seniors, and others who may have mobility challenges?
4) How can we preserve the history of the waterpark and build community identity?
Step 2: Create Your Own Vision
Now that you've considered the possibilities. We want to see your vision for the site!
