Sugar House Park, or Sugarhouse Park, is located between I-80, 2100 South, 1300 East, and 1700 East in the Sugar House neighborhood of Salt Lake City, Utah, United States. The 110-acre (45 ha) park is at the heart of the Sugar House neighborhood and is the site of a fireworks show and concert every Independence Day (July 4th) and a popular sledding location in the winter.

The park was the location of Sugar House Prison, Utah's first state prison, until 1951 when the current prison was opened in Draper.[1]
