NOTE: This page was design for display on the mobile version of Park City, Utah

Park City is a resort community in Utah's Wasatch Mountains with a reported population of just over 8000 people as of 2008.

Millions of tourists and part time residents sojourn in the area for winter and summer recreation opportunities.


The town was originally named Parley's Park City, after an LDS Apostle Parley Pratt who grazed sheep in Utah's earliest pioneer days. The name was shortened sometime after the discovery of silver and gold in the mountains after which Park City transformed into a bustling mining boom town.

Tragedy struck Park City in 1898 when a fire devasted most of the pioneer and early mining buildings in town.

Economic hardship hit the town in the mid twentieth century as the rich mines in the area began to play out. During this period, Park City transitioned from a mining to a resort town.
