Stansbury park is a small town just north of the somewhat larger original town along the Oquirrh mountains, Tooele. In 1990 the population of Stansbury was only 1,049 with the last census taken in 2010 the population was 5,145. I can only guess that the number has at least doubled in the past eight years. The population of Utah has increased significantly in the past few years and we can only guess that the population in the small town of Stansbury has also changed and grown. Stansbury Park was original designed by a developer named Terracor. Originally the plans were for a lake that would allow for sailing and canoeing a large 18 hole golf course and swimming pools and parks. In the 1980s this developer went bankrupt and was no longer apart of the plans in creating Stansbury Park. The original plan was fallowed closely by the new investors that came in and Stansbury is now home to many fun parks and recreational areas. Stansbury park is conveniently located minutes off of interstate 80 and is pretty close to down town. Stansbury park is only a short drive to down town Salt Lake City.
