Tooele Pioneer Park – Created in 1976 to honor the first families who made camp near the mouth of Settlement Canyon on September 2, 1849 and began the settlement of Tooele City. Those families were John Rowberry, his wife and five children; Josiah Call, his wife and one child; Cyrus Tolman, his wife and two children; Judson Tolman, his wife and one child; Orson Bravett, his wife and five children; Captain Wright, his wife and one boy; and F.

The park features picnic and playground facilities.
