Seven Canyons Fountain was a collaboration between two architects, a landscape architect and a sculptor. The team’s idea was to recreate Salt Lake City’s canyons and waterways so people could walk through them. Groupings of rock represent the mountains along the Wasatch Front. Miniature rivers and creeks flow from the canyons – City Creek, Red Butte, Emigration, Parleys, East Mill Creek, Big and Little Cottonwood. They flow into the Jordan River and, later, empty into the Great Salt Lake.
