Garden Park at Daybreak - Fabulous Senior Living in Utah

Are you interested in living in one of the top rated senior communities in the United States?  Garden Park is a beautiful age-restricted neighborhood within the ten year-old community of Daybreak near South Jordan, Utah.  It was recently selected as the Gold Winner in the category of "Best For-Sale 50+ Community in the United States containing over 200 Homes" by the National Association of Home Builders.

What Makes Daybreak So Special?

In just ten years, the new home community of Daybreak has become one of the most popular places for people of all ages to move in the state of Utah.  In fact, approximately one out of six new homes that are currently sold in the Salt Lake Valley are purchased in Daybreak.

Daybreak has been designed with the 5 minute rule in mind.  This means that there are lots of fun things to do within a 5 minute walk of nearly every home in the village, including parks, shops, community gardens, swimming pools, tennis courts, sports fields, restaurants, businesses, schools and miles of bicycle trails.  In addition, the community is built alongside a beautiful lake.

The goal of the developers is to create a vibrant community for people of all ages, while maintaining a healthy environment.

What Makes Garden Park a Gold Medal Winner?

Garden Park is the section of Daybreak that has been specifically designed for the over-55 crowd.  Residents live in individual homes, townhomes or apartments, many with no stairs and all of them with no yard work ... which is very appealing as we all get older.  Those homes that do have stairs often have downstairs master bedrooms so that only your guests have to trek up and down the steps.

Most of the homes are within an easy stroll to the SoDa section of Daybreak that contains shops and restaurants.  The community is also near the University of Utah Healthcare Center. 

Garden Park residents can use all the amenities of Daybreak, including the beautiful lake where they can enjoy activities like going kayaking or taking sailing lessons.

In addition, Garden Park has its own 10,000 square foot clubhouse with a pool, gym, billiards room, and aerobics classes.  There are benches and lounge areas where you can sit outdoors, enjoy nature or meet new friends.  Residents may want to take an exercise class, stroll alongside the lake or plant vegetables in the community garden.  Residents especially love the peace and tranquility of the lakeside setting.

Townhomes can be purchased in the $200,000 to $250,000 price range.  Single family cottages start at around $250,000 and larger homes currently sell for over $500,000.  Many of the single family homes and cottages have charming front porches that make it easier to get to know your neighbors.

If you are considering moving to this region of the country when you retire, Garden Park at Daybreak has everything you could want.
