Lehi is planning park on a 72-acre plot

LEHI, Utah (AP) — Saying it could attract many visitors, city leaders are talking about turning 72 acres into a recreation destination, with golf, fishing and ice skating.
"This has a million possibilities," city planner Kim Struthers said. "This is going to be an exciting park. It's goingd to draw from the whole region."
Lehi, north of Provo in Utah County, purchased the Thomas J. Peck Family Park a year ago for $50,000 per acre.
Construction has begun, but a parking study and design work still must be done before the City Council can give preliminary approval. The project also will go before the Parks and Trails Committee for review.
The plan includes a skate park, fishing pond, cascading water, a water-play area for children, a skating pond, a large-event pavilion and several smaller pavilions. The public could be charged to use them.
Council member Mark Johnson said the city is considering selling plastic bracelets that would allow all-day access.
"It would definitely be a regional draw. It's not a common park," said Jamie Davidson, city administrator.
Struthers said Johnson has donated his time over nine months to draw a concept plan, a service that would have cost the city at least $11,000.
"This obviously has the potential to be a pretty exciting project," Johnson said. "Having 72 acres is a heck of a lot of property. There is a lot you can do up there."
