Open space preservation is a high priority in the Park City area due to
ongoing development pressure. This scenic stand of mature timber forest
and mountain terrain forms the backdrop for the small community of
Summit Park and offers spectacular views of the Snyderville Basin. Using
funds from the federal Forest Legacy Program, TPL negotiated purchase
of a conservation easement over 325 acres, which prohibits development
on the property while keeping it in private ownership.  The  easement ensures that Summit Park's breathtaking
scenery and outstanding recreational values are available for public
enjoyment forever.
