OREM, Utah (AP) -- Utah residents can now visit an old park with a new look.

Nielsen's Grove Park in southwest Orem is opening up again for public use. It was Orem's first community park.

Originally the 18-acre park had a 12-seat carousel swing, picnic arbors, a working greenhouse, a garden, reflecting pools and an outdoor dance floor.

Some of those things will return to the new 22-acre park along with modern-day restrooms, a children's playground and a parking lot.

The park was slated for a mid-June opening but will probably not be dedicated now until the fall. However, the park is now open to the public for picnicking and the bowery is available for weddings and parties.
