Hidden Village Park

This gorgeous pocket park off of 5300 lives up to its name. The medium-rise office building to the north and the tennis courts to the west effortlessly create a barrier between the park and the rest of the city. Transporting you away from the concerns of your daily life for a few hours. Amenities offered include tennis-only courts (sorry Pickleballers), a small playground, picnic pavilion. Hidden Village Park is sure to become a staple of your family’s life while living at The Gallery. 

Murray City Park

Where Hidden Village Park is a neighborhood park, Murray City Park is a true city park. Mixing natural amenities with man-made amenities to ensure every resident can find something to enrich their lives within its walls. The Outdoor Amphitheater hosts concerts and plays throughout the summer and fall celebrating the creativity of the residents of Murray. Hiking trails offer you an opportunity to better reconnect with nature without traveling far from home. The Park Center can allow for a lower cost gym to help you achieve your fitness goals, not to mention opportunities to go swimming when it’s too cold for the outdoor pool. There is so much that this local gathering space has to offer you.

Murray Parkway

Part of the multi-county, 40 mile mega park, Jordan River Parkway, Murray Parkway consists of five distinct parks and one wetlands preserve maintained by Murray City Parks and Recreation. Starting in 1973 the Jordan River Parkway system was an effort to clean-up pollution, aid in flood control, and enrich current and future residents of Utah. A process that is continuing to the current day! The Murray portion of the park offers opportunities to enjoy canoeing, equestrian trails, fishing, along the five interconnected parks. Along with all the other amenities you can expect from high quality city parks. Murray Parkway and the Jordan River Parkway is a living statement to the progress we have made to leave a better world behind us than the one we came into. This system is not to be missed or ignored, and can be accessed by visiting Germania Park, Willow Pond Park, Arrowhead Park, Walden Park or Winchester Park. 

Like the work the Jordan River Parkway has put into leaving a better Utah for the future than the past; Garbett Homes takes the same attitude with the homes we build. We are so excited for the upcoming opening of our new community of Townhomes in Murray, The Gallery at Bullion Place. Offering Zero Energy Ready Homes that have a lower impact on the environment than the competition, you too can do your part in making the state we love even better. If you’re interested in learning more about this community, or any of our other communities, please reach out to our New Home Specialist today!
