The John W. Gallivan Utah Center (\"The Gallivan Center\"), a year-round urban space and urban area destination located in downtown Salt Lake City, serves many purposes. The Gallivan Centre is home to a lush grass amphitheater and public plazas. It also houses a banquet/meeting centre, a public ice skating rink and art installations.

Downtown residents, workers and visitors have the opportunity to visit The Gallivan Centre, which is truly a \"people place\". Here, they can enjoy free and low-cost performances, eat on the plaza, use the provided equipment, relax from their hectic workdays, or simply watch.

The Gallivan Center has been in operation for almost three decades. It enhances Downtown's community spirit and vibrancy by providing diverse, inclusive entertainment, educational, and recreational experiences for all ages.

There are both private and public rental options. Gallivan-sponsored events are funded largely by rental income and the ice skating rink.

The following Plaza Rules are in effect for all events and rentals.

This is not a complete list. Some event/rental organizers may have stricter rules to ensure the safety of performers and patrons.

The Gallivan Center is one of the largest investments by the Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City to-date. The creation of Gallivan Center was a multifaceted endeavor that spanned decades. It began with the acquisition of Block 57 properties (bounded by State Street and Main Street, 200 South and 300 South) in early 1980s. This led to the construction of One Utah Center, an office tower and parking garage, in 1990. The RDA constructed the three-acre public area component for the block's interior in 1993. It was named after John W. Gallivan (a former editor of the Salt Lake Tribune). The Gallivan Center was completed in phases II and III. By the end of the decade, it included a variety of unique public art projects as well as a performance stage and amphitheater, an ice rink and green space for outdoor recreation and wayfinding.
