Sugar House is located within the Salt Lake City grid system. According to the Community Council, it runs from 700 East to Foothill Drive and north to south from 1300 South to the city limits about 3000 South. According to Salt Lake City’s master plan, it runs from 700 East to Parleys Way and 2000 East and from 1700 South to the city limits about 3000 South.
Sugar House is a desirable location due to the proximity to freeways and to the University of Utah. There are plenty of "Mom and Pop" style businesses along 2100 South and 1100 East. Sugar House Park is one of the nicest parks in the valley and is a mecca for biking, skateboarding, and walking in the summer and for sledding in the winter. It sits on the site occupied by the Utah State Prison until it was moved to Draper in 1951.
