The Jordan River flows over 50 miles from Utah Lake north to the Great Salt Lake wetlands. The river flows through three counties - Utah, Salt Lake and Davis - and 15 cities. This Wasatch Front Region is classified as urban and is where more than 80 percent of Utah's 3 million residents live and work. Within this setting, the Jordan River Parkway runs along the river and provides a system of natural areas, recreation and nature trails, parks, and a wealth of opportunities for people to experience and learn about the natural world and enjoy the outdoors. The majority of a mixed-use trail has been completed with a shared-use path for pedestrians, bird watchers, cyclists, skaters, and joggers. A separate equestrian path runs on the southern portion of the trail. Numerous amenities of trail-heads, public parks, nature/wildlife preserves, benches, grassy areas, picnic tables, pavilions, restrooms, playgrounds, and canoe docks can be found along the parkway.
Your donations support the continued development and maintenance of this public parkway including recreation, water quality, conservation, restoration and wildlife resources. We also support education and events for sharing knowledge in order to increase awareness and community enjoyment of this 50-mile plus blue-green jewel within the densest urban population of Utah.
