Long Description:
The Gallivan Center is an urban plaza in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. It opened in 1993. Also known as the John W. Gallivan Utah Center, it is named in honor of John W. Gallivan.

Located between State and Main and 200 South and Broadway, it serves as Salt Lake City's outdoor living room. It is furnished with an array of unique art projects, an amphitheater/stage, ice rink, large chess board, light wells and an aviary.

An adjacent UTA TRAX station takes its name from the plaza, and serves as the transfer point for connecting to and from the Salt Lake/Sandy line and the University line.

Crowds gather for weekday lunches, and lunchtime concerts. Countless other events fill the Gallivan Center with people. Especially popular are summertime twilight concerts. A "Blues and Brews" festival usually occurs on a September weekend.

It was popular gathering place during the 2002 Olympic Winter Games.

Kazuo Matsubayashi's Asteroid Landed Softly Sundial is one of the prominent features of the plaza.

The Gallivan Center is owned by the Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City. Salt Lake City Public Services has partnered with an RDA to provide the management, programming and maintenance. Both entities are working toward establishing a public space that has the versatility to provide a recreational, educational and vocational site for families and individuals of all ages.
