The nearby West Jordan Canal along with other irrigation canals were developed by Archibald Gardner. Utah’s first commercial water rights were issued to Archibald Gardner and his West Jordan Mill.
A parking secret - holidays and weekends attract large crowds. when you enter the regular parking area, it may look like there is no available parking.
