From March through May, downtown bursts with colors of spring. The Downtown Garden Stroll builds upon one of the premier urban gardens in the west, at Temple Square, and provides a sense of playfulness, surprise and discovery for downtown visitors.
Downtown Garden Stroll
Downtown SLC Presents and Salt Lake City are seeking proposals from artists to design, build and install pop-up parks on Main Street. Artists will build up from an 8’ x 20’ platform incorporating landscaping and seating along with elements of art, playfulness and fun. The Downtown Garden Stroll will run from March 28 to May 14 leading up to the flowers that bloom on Main Street and Mothers Day. There will be eight platforms placed between South Temple and 300 South. To encourage variety, we seek unique artists or artist teams for each of these small, park-like environments on Main Street. Partnership with floral designers and landscape specialists is encouraged though floral/landscape elements can be interpretive.
