Park City Dirt Jump Park--Review!

So, this is not your normal week review of leisure but it's something to be considered--how cool is this? A dirt park right in the middle of town?  Hidden on the hillside behind the fire station in Park Meadows.  I have jogged by this before not knowing that this was a public park--thinking to myself some crazy kids have gone wild!

I wonder how you can have a normal childhood in Park City?  It's not possible--There are way to many cool things to do!  This is a fav of mine as I grew up riding dirt bikes...I don't think you could get me on a BMX bike today but if you are braver than me check this out:

THE BEST's located approx 5.5 miles from the Retreat...if you ride your bike you can be there in approx. 25 minutes (maybe faster if you are not riding a cruiser hauling a toddler behind)!

What to do with your Summer in PC...

With the Summer months ahead of us, it's time to start thinking about how we are going to spend the days...Here is a commitment for you: a weekly review of a fun thing to do around town.  Of course I will tell you all about it, and then give you the mileage from our neighborhood to show you how convenient this place really is!  While it snowed last night I can't stop thinking about this week I'm reviewing Park City Golf Course.

Personally, I love this course.  I have played it many times and the greens are always in great shape and faster than your normal public course.  The setting is to die for and if you are lucky enough to be around in the fall there is no better place to enjoy the leaves changing than on the golf course.

My favorite hole is no. 6 which is a short downhill par 4.  Club selection off the tee is tricky and the approach shot to a fairly narrow green has to be thoughtful as there is a pond in front!  The staff is always friendly and there is easy access to food and drink (which is always a top priority for me)!  While the driving range and practice facility is the one downfall to the course you have to take it with a grain of salt as the real estate is scarce around this golf course that literally backs up to Park City Mountain Resort.

They take online reservations
(Click Here) is snipit from the website for your info:

"First built in 1963 as a nine-hole course, this William Neff, signature golf course was redesigned to its current 18-holes in 1976. In 2003, #18 was redesigned by William Neff Jr., and has proven to be one of the classic finishing holes in Utah. In addition to providing professionally designed and well kept greens, Park City Golf Club's elevation of 6700 feet can actually add distance to your shots while you play on a course that is typically 10 to 15 degrees cooler than most courses in the area-a definite bonus during the hot summer months."

And the construction commences!

We are soooo excited that we have begun constructing new homes again. We have pre-sold 3 homes this year--yes, that is correct pre-sold in this market! What that means is, we MUST be a smokin' deal--with all the foreclosures and short sales around our buyers are finding that our homes are still a better deal! For many reasons...not to mention no headaches of buying a home that has been sitting forever unoccupied and warranty free!
Check out the photo, this is our super superintendent Cortney standing on a rock we discovered...rock is approx. 7'x 7'x ???
Keep tuned to the progress!
