Adjoining the University of Utah and the Wasatch Mountain Range, affluent Federal Heights includes many classic homes that are historical in nature, having been built in the 1900s. Originally planned as officer’s quarters for Fort Douglas, this walkable neighborhood adjoins the Red Butte Canyon Research Natural Area and the Tomahawk Natural Area. City Creek and the City Creek Natural Area are also located here. Beautiful scenery and plenty of open space are basic facts of life in this community.

With plenty of hiking trails and nature at hand, Federal Heights is nonetheless less than a 10-minutes drive from downtown Salt Lake City. The City Creek Shopping Center is located near by.
