Welcome to Greater Park City Area
From the mountains to the music and movie festivals, Park City offers a highly-desirable quality of life built around life’s greatest enjoyments. This area offers a true mountain lifestyle; Park City Mountain Resort has lodging and lift rides for skiers in the heart of the city, while Deer Valley is the go-to spot for celebrities and visitors looking for a more exclusive, high-end experience. But no matter where you go, you’d be hard-pressed to find an area of Park City that doesn’t have direct access to your favorite outdoor activity.
You can find your ideal mountain home here, no matter your lifestyle. From modest, secluded single-family homes to extravagant estates and everything in between.
Park City is home to many full-time residents that are committed to their town, community, and the mountains. It’s also a popular spot for vacationers who’ve purchased second homes here, as well as celebrities who frequent the upscale Deer Valley neighborhood.
Parks & Nature
Park City is synonymous with outdoor recreation, from its hiking and biking trails, to the wide open spaces, to the world-class fishing and bird watching. Woodward Park City, opening Winter 2019, is the area’s newest sports facility and joins the likes of other fantastic community parks such as Trailside Park. Trailside Park features two playgrounds, sports fields, an off-leash dog park, disc golf, tennis and pickleball courts, and basketball courts. The main draw, though, is the local bike park with flow lines built for riders of all ages; you’ll see everyone from toddlers to adults perfecting their skills here.
Arts & Culture
Known for hosting the Sundance Film Festival, Park City is brimming with arts and culture attractions. Take a stroll along Main Street and you’ll find a number of fine art galleries, such as the Kimball Art Center, featuring work by local artists. You can learn about the history of Park City at the Park City Museum, or visit the Alf Engen Ski Museum to see how skiing became the beloved sport it is today. Take in a show at Egyptian Theatre or head over to Deer Valley to see the Utah Symphony perform. Don’t miss out on the Deer Valley Concert Series, which brings fantastic live music to the town every summer.
Schools in Park City fall under the Park City School District. There are several private school options including the Winter Sports School, a unique high school for winter athletes that provides schedule flexibility so athletes can compete during the winter season.
The smaller Utah-owned stores along Park City’s Main Street are popular with tourists who hit up the ski, bike, and outdoor shops in between trips to the mountain. The nearby Jans is a go-to for residents and visitors alike who are looking for outdoor equipment and accessories. You’ll see Kimball Junction as you get off the freeway and head into Park City. This sprawling retail area is home to big box stores, grocers (like Whole Foods), restaurants, and more. There’s also a bike path nearby that can take you right into Park City. Right beside Kimball Junction is Outlets Park City, where you can shop brand names like Nike and J. Crew for great prices.
What better way to end a day outside than with a delicious meal? In Park City, there’s no shortage of fantastic options. High West Distillery is a local favorite known for their whiskey, which you can enjoy in their tasting room or coupled with a great meal. Café Terigo is the place to go for lunch with a side of people-watching, while Riverhorse on Main remains Park City’s top-rated restaurant, consistently ranked as one of the top culinary destinations in North America.
Park City offers a fare-free bus system that can take you around the town at no cost to you. If you’re visiting one of the local hotels or resorts, there will also more than likely be complimentary transportation services. But for day-to-day life, it’s best to get around by car – especially on the days when you want to load up your car with your gear and head to your favorite hiking, biking, or skiing trail.
Explore the CommunitiesWhat Park City community suits you best? Here’s what we love about each of them:
When you first drive into Park City, you’ll pass the Summit Park, Jeremy Ranch, and Pinebrook communities. Just a 20- to 30-minute commute to Salt Lake City, this area is popular with those who work in SLC but want the Park City lifestyle. Another community advantage is the real estate; many of the homes back onto the mountains or open spaces.
Homes in this community are a part of the Park City resort. You’ll find a lot of condos and new developments here with single-family homes in The Colony, which is a gated community within The Canyons known for its opulence. The Colony offers custom ski-in-ski-out estate homes with incredible access and views.
Park City’s Old Town community comprises the downtown area, where you’ll find Main Street’s shops, restaurants, and nightlife. This community is more of a tourist destination but has kept its historic feel. The houses and condos in this area are all minutes away from the lift at Park City Mountain and just down the road from Deer Valley.
The Deer Valley community is often separated into four neighborhoods: Deer Crest, Lower Deer Valley, Upper Deer Valley, and Empire Pass. In all of these neighborhoods you’ll find luxurious condos and houses with ski-in-ski-out access to the mountain. The St. Regis Deer Valley, Stein Eriksen Lodge, and Montage Hotel are all located in this community.
