Concept plan for Cook Family Park located at 800 North and 600 West in Pleasant Grove.

Next fall, Pleasant Grove will open a 25-acre park at the city’s center. This week, the city announced it will be officially known as the Cook Family Park as the family donated $5 million for its construction.

The estimated completion of the entire park is 2025, but the splash pad and the playground is expected to be up and running by the fall of 2024. The groundbreaking for Cook Family Park will be held Aug. 2, at 10 a.m. and any children attending will get the chance to be a part of starting the construction process.

It is open to the public and will be children-centered — the Cooks will have 100 small shovels on hand for children to be part of the ground breaking. Pleasant Grove City Mayor Guy Fugal said every child will get a chance to break ground, no matter how many rounds of dirt turning are needed.
