Park of the Canals

Welcome to Park of the Canals

In order to preserve the ancient Indian and early Mormon canals, Van B. and Vida Brinton tried to purchase the East 20 acres of what is now the Park of the Canales. In November 1971, a year and one half after Van Brinton ‘s death, the George Bond family offered to sell the 20 acres to the Brinton family for $85,000 plus interest. Payments were to be made over three years.
