Also referred to as the People’s Freeway, it’s centerpiece is Smith’s Ballpark, the home field of the Salt Lake Bees of the Triple-A West. Since 1994, baseball fans have congregated to the neighborhood to see the Salt Lake Bees minor league baseball team in action. The Ballpark is noted for its stunning views of the Wasatch Mountains and for the frequent fireworks displays throughout the summer.
The Ballpark UTA Station is located in the neighborhood and is one of the busiest light rail stations in the city, servicing all three lines of the Trax system. Commuters can also take advantage of numerous bus-lines, the U Car Share program, and dedicated parking lots.
Real estate is varied within the neighborhood ranging from the historic Jefferson School apartments, to the contemporary Rowhaus Condos, a green community of 24, 3-story, townhouse-style condominiums.
