Long Description:
The iconic 1,200-foot-long re-creation of the historic City Creek flows through the shopping center, a tribute to the south fork of the creek that once coursed through downtown and was the original water source for early farmers. This is one of two 18-foot waterfalls, one on each block, that gently cascade over natural Utah sandstone boulders. This waterfall is adjacent to the stairway that brings visitors from the street level at 100 South, up to the Richard's Court level of the City Creek Center.

Rising in the heart of Salt Lake City, City Creek Center is the retail centerpiece of one of the nation's largest mixed-use downtown redevelopment projects. This unique shopping environment features a retractable glass roof, a creek that runs through the property, a pedestrian skybridge and more. This world-class fashion and dining destination offers over 90 stores and restaurants, in a casual, pedestrian-friendly environment.
