Over the last few years active-adult communities have become increasingly popular among retirees because they provide an opportunity to reside near people in the same stage of life, offer a low-maintenance lifestyle and provide a variety of programed activities to keep you busy. In the Best Place to Retire ranking on Forbes.com, Salt Lake City is ranked as one of the top 25 places in the nation for retirement. Among the factors that determined the ranking were cost of living, access to quality health care and a plethora ­­of options for outdoor recreation. Whether you are recently retired or still working, thinking about where you want to live as retirement approaches is extremely important.

Retirement Options in Salt Lake City

Daybreak is the largest master planned community in Utah. Located in a suburb of Salt Lake City, Daybreak offers two active-adult communities—Garden Park and Springhouse Village.

Garden Park Village: Just for people age 55+. Think beautiful, easy-living homes and access to a variety of amenities. When you buy a home in Garden Park you get a care-free lifestyle. For instance, yard work is a thing of the past. And you get more ways to spend all the mowing-weeding-pruning time you’ve freed yourself from. Like exclusive access to the Garden Club community center and pool, classes and events–plus parks, trails, kayaking on Oquirrh Lake, shopping and dining at SoDa Row and a host of other possibilities.

New homesites for townhomes and single-family homes are now available along the shores of Oquirrh Lake with the recent release of phase 2 of their Lakeside offering. Learn more about the Lakeside offering.

Springhouse Village: Our newest 55+ village is all about fresh. With a fresh notion of the good life. And a bouquet of fresh home designs by OakwoodLife. The homes in Springhouse Village live easy (no stairs, no maintenance). And the neighborhood is filled with good stuff including trails, parks, and a 10,000 sq. ft. private community center—The Spring House.

The Spring House Community Center breathes with endless possibilities you’ll simply adore. Work out in the state-of-the art fitness center with adjacent locker rooms. Take up yoga and Zumba classes. Enjoy lifelong learning and creative crafts. The menu of activities runs deep at The Spring House to give residents everything to enjoy resort-style living.

Get to know Daybreak

If Daybreak feels different than other places, it’s because this South Jordan community is different. With 30+ miles of trails, a lake, and at least one park or open space within easy walking distance of every home, Daybreak is really just a big invitation to go outside and play. Or at least go sit beside the lake, read a book and watch the ducks go swimming by.

According to Ken Perlman, Principal with John Burns Real Estate Consulting, “Daybreak is not just one of the best master plans in Salt Lake City, but anywhere. The themes Daybreak promotes really resonate with today’s homebuyer. Social interaction, healthy living, wellness, and of course great homes are the cornerstones of what today’s buyer is looking for.”

We invite you to learn more about Garden Park or Springhouse Village by visiting a Daybreak Information Center.  Model homes are open Monday-Saturday, 10 AM-6 PM.
