Things to Do in Central City

View Map

Just east of downtown, Central City borders the University of Utah campus and is home to many restaurants, cafes and local boutique shops around Trolley Square. New condominium developments have arisen here, where light rail lines offer easy public transportation through the community and into downtown Salt Lake City. Liberty Park, with a small lake at its center and Sunnyside Park near the university both offer outdoor recreation. The Salt Lake Regional Medical Center is also located here.

Popular with students and downtown office workers, Central City’s vibrant real estate includes single-family homes, condo complexes, and apartments. The Desert Edge Brewery offers live music in an historic structure.

The distinctive, modern Salt Lake City Public Library holds more than 500,000 books, while outside in its attractive plaza, annual outdoor events such as the Pride Festival, Jazz Festival and the Living Traditions Festival attracts locals and visitors.
