you are in the middle of this serene areas, where nuns and mormon prefects try to talk to you right next to a water fountain. Then you turn around and have a statue there. You read all about the history, and think interesting.

Not really a major destination - but a part of a complete visit to Temple Square. Worth seeing - but not the goal in and of itself!

Meridian marker for Salt lake City, UT. Beautifully kept gardens and flowers. Peace and serenity. Have a box lunch or just sit and enjoy the garden. Located in Downton=wn Salt Lake but miles away from it all

These Memorial Gardens hold the grave of Brigham Young and four of his wives. It is a beautifully kept garden, offering time for reflection in peaceful surroundings.

The monument is located in a park about a two block walk from Temple Square. If you have time, it is worth a stop. I would prioritize The Beehive House over this location. Grave located back left corner with the fencing around it.
