Gardner Village is a plesant little enclave of specialty shops clustered around a small pond, just off the Jordan River parkway. While the majority of the shops hold no interest to me, my wife, daughters, and mother-in-law, all enjoy many off them. There are specialty shops for couture clothing, dolls, and random knick-knacks. The highlight of the village is the Modern Display store, which includes more than half the floorspace dedicated to christmas ornaments, christmas village, and halloween paraphernalia. This is something directly geared for me, and I could (and have) spend hours in this store, reviewed all the christmas stuff. The pond area is pleasant enough, but there isn't really anywhere to sit and relax near it. The restraunt and specialty eateries are nothing special, but do fill a niche role. All around, a pleasant experience if a little lacking in things to do and see.
