About Nielsen's Grove Park

Nielsen's Grove is thought to be the first official park in the State of Utah. This park, begun in 1880 by Danish immigrant Jorgen Nielson, plays a role in Orem City from its earliest beginnings to the present day. In 2003, the park was added to Orem's official green space when it was brought back to its former glory. The park contains a water fountain, a reflecting pool, a rebuilt carousel swing, picnic pavilions, walking pathways, a playground, parterre gardens, and a natural pond populated with ducks.
