What is Discovery Day?
A free public event started in 2002 by Utah Heritage Foundation and First Lady Jaclyn Leavitt, Discovery Day brought thousands of people to the Utah State Capitol before and after its restoration. Through Memory Grove Discovery Day, we continue the tradition of bringing historic building restoration techniques to the public through fun and free activities.

We are currently planning to have the following activities as part of Memory Grove Discovery Day:

  • Memory Grove scavenger hunt (prizes awarded!)DSCN1638
  • Stained glass
  • Geodesic domes
  • and more!

And every child is given a free coloring book of Memory Grove landmarks. These activities are suitable for children generally between the ages of 4 and 12.

At Memorial House in Memory Grove Park, 375 N. Canyon Rd. (120 East), in Salt Lake City. The park will serve as the location of the finish line for the Donut Dash 5K and is accessible from the starting line and East Capitol Boulevard via the Rotary Steps and path up the west side of the park to the Utah State Capitol. Memory Grove Park and Memorial House are ADA accessible, however the path and steps are not accessible.

All children under the age of 18 are required to be accompanied by an adult when participating in the activities.

No registration needed for Discovery Day.DSCN1643
