Sugarhouse Community – Urban


Sugarhouse is known for its close proximity to downtown Salt Lake City and the University area.  There is nothing quite like Sugarhouse.  Its closest likeness would be the Avenues Community.

In this walkable area you will find Sugarhouse Park, Yoga and Pilates studios, and an abundance of local shopping and dining options.  Chain options, such as Barnes and Noble Bookstore and Café, Whole Foods Market, Petco, The Loft, and Megalplex Luxury Movie Theater are also in immediate walking distance.  Sugarhouse is a short drive to all the major canyons for the best hiking, biking, and skiing.

Sugarhouse is a primary location for community support and activism.  This is shown through lectures and documentaries held at Westminster College, and community gatherings with live music to support local food trucks.  Events are also held at Sugarhouse Park and Liberty Park supporting local vendors.  Sugarhouse Coffee is a favorite local gathering spot.  Here you will find students studying for exams, playing chess, and listening to local musicians.
