Welcome to Greater Park City & Surrounding Areas
Home to the adventurous and full of family-friendly amenities
More than just its historic community and resort access, Greater Park City also includes several family-friendly neighborhoods and suburbs within its surrounding areas. Among the spacious mountains and magnificent forests are neighborhoods like Sun Peak, Ranch Place, Silver Springs, Pinebrook, Trailside, Silver Creek, and plenty more. Each with its own advantages, these communities range from gated suburban dreams to sprawling acres next door to premier hiking. It isn’t difficult to find a location that’s best suited to your needs among the wide variety.
One of the best facets of these communities is that, for the most part, they all maintain close proximity to Park City, resorts, Salt Lake City, or a combination of all three. Silver Springs, for example, is under 10 minutes from Park City in the nearby census-designated place of Snyderville and is one of the preferred locations for locals thanks to its plentiful parks, private lakes, access to magnificent recreational opportunities, and easy commute to bigger cities. Or if you want to be located a little closer to metropolitan amenities, Pinebrook is nestled within the dense pines, just thirty minutes to Salt Lake City and twenty minutes from Park City.
