Nestled near Mountain View Corridor, the ballpark will be easily accessible for fans across the Wasatch Front with walking and cycling options available for those who live within the 4,100-acre master-planned community of Daybreak. UTA also has plans to add an additional Red Line TRAX Station for improved public transportation access.
“Downtown Daybreak will be a transformational, mixed-use development in the fastest growing part of Salt Lake County, and we are thrilled this initial phase will be anchored by a new ballpark and entertainment plaza. This project, located between the TRAX line and Mountain View Corridor, will be a destination for the community to gather and create shared experiences for family and friends,” said Steve Starks, CEO of the Larry H. Miller Company.
As part of the entertainment in the area, Starks and City of South Jordan Mayor Dawn Ramsey announced plans for a new Megaplex theatre.

Miller Megaplex Entertainment will also bring jobs, diverse housing and amenities, entertainment, retail and dining options, and natural recreation areas. I am proud of the collaboration between the city council and staff at South Jordan City and the team at the Larry H. Miller Company. This is a true partnership and a once-in-a-generation opportunity.”
