Wheeler Farm – Murray Utah – Salt Lake County

Location: 6351 South 900 East, Murray Utah

“Wheeler Farm is awesome because you have the “out doorsy” look with the trees, river, and pond. But also has some great walls for a more “urban” feel. There are great paths, farm equipment, and is just an all over great spot for pictures!”

Conservation Park – Salt Lake County

Location: 8215 S 1300 W, West Jordan

The Conservation Gardens at Jordan Valley Water Concervancy is a demonstration garden for waterwise landscaping. There are many lovely arbors and benches for a classic feel. At this time they do not have photography restrictions but they do hours of operation. Summer hours are
8am to 8pm (Sundays 12pm to 8pm) and Winter hours are 8am to 5pm. They are currently expanding and the expansion looks to have a more urban feel. They will even have a giant chess set! You can see their website here http://www.conservationgardenpark.org/

The bridge and the pathway are closer to the east side of the park, and the orange wall is the snack bar is near the middle of the park. There are endless places for pictures here ranging from ponds,
flowers and a few “urban” type spots, like the wall.

Riverwoods – Provo – Utah County

Located at 4800 North University Avenue in Provo.

The Riverwoods in Provo is a group of specialty shops near a trail that runs along the Provo River. The river area is usually green and full of trees and there is the occasional bridge which make great settings. The shops can lend a fun urban feel right near the river. It also has some fun design in it’s Townhomes and Condos, but be aware, these are all privately owned so be careful of when you go and respectful of residents. Nearby are open fields and just a hop away from the mouth of Provo Canyon.
