Old Sugar House park once occupied the block between 1100 E/Highland Drive and 1300 E along 2100 south. In 1951, when the Old Utah State Prison was shut down, the park was moved to the prison's old location. The thriving business district soon covered the old park. However, a remnant of the old park remains as the Hidden Hollow Natural Area.
