Ogden’s Panorama

This panorama image was taken in or around 1914. I’ve started with the full image, then added four closeups which each show a quarter of the image in closeup.

Downtown Ogden in 1986

Enjoy a drive through Ogden’s Washington Boulevard back in 1986.

The snow is still lying on the ground, but the sunshine and clear blue skies are beautifully captured on this old home video tape.

Ogden’s Watermelon Park

Watermelon Park is Ogden’s smallest park, located between 25th and 26th streets on Eccles.

But that’s just an informal name used by locals for the community space, because of its oval shape. Its official name is the Historic Eccles Park.

The park is maintained by the city, alongside the local volunteers who look after the plants and flower beds.

Around the parks are a range of beautiful historic homes, built more than a century ago for Ogden’s prominent citizens. Plaques have been erected around the park about the historic homes and their long-ago residents.

The mature trees were planted back in 1908, today providing pleasant shade.
