Poplar Grove, Salt Lake City


Poplar Grove, Salt Lake City

Poplar Grove is a western neighborhood of Salt Lake City, Utah. It lies north of Glendale and south of Rose Park & Fair Park. It is the second largest neighborhood in Salt Lake City (after Glendale) and is often confused with Glendale. Poplar Grove broke off from Glendale in the 1990s,[citation needed] following Salt Lake City Neighborhood guidelines by submitting paperwork to the City Council for approval.Popular Grove existed as a neighborhood long before Glendale was created. It got its name from a grove of trees the Edwin Rushton family planted in the area that became known as "Popular Grove" in the late 1800s. Being the first neighborhood in Salt Lake City to change the original set boundaries,[citation needed] Poplar Grove now has its own community council with elected board members.

The boundaries are east I-15, West to Salt Lake City boundaries at 5600 West. Although there is less than a dozen houses West of Redwood Road (1700 West) The South Border is approximately 900 South (the true Southern border with Glendale is the old rail road tracks which are no longer there, having been converted to the new 9 line trail). The Northern border is North Temple bordering Fair Park from I-15 to 1000 West and Rose Park from 1000 West to 5600 West.
