This is the time of year when many of us make goals to improve our health. I am grateful and proud that South Jordan offers so many opportunities to help each of us create a healthy lifestyle, and I encourage you to discover and participate in one or more of our community offerings, depending on your age and interests.
I highly recommend taking part in the fun and fabulous SoJo Race Series, where we recently added fitness and rucking challenges. South Jordan City hosts a race most months, and participants of all abilities are encouraged to participate. Walking, running, or wheeling to finish even one race can bring a sense of accomplishment and encourage healthy habits.
The City of South Jordan has nine miles of free, beautiful trails along the Jordan River and throughout the city. I love seeing people walking, running, cycling, and skating on them year-round. The City Council and I are also looking forward to our new splash pad opening at Heritage Park this summer. Did you know in our city we currently have:
- 1 lake
- 1 river
- 2 golf courses
- 2 splash pads
- 3 fishing ponds
- 9 miles of trails
- 9 tennis courts
- 10 pickleball courts
- 10 baseball and softball fields
- 37 parks
- 250 acres of open space
I encourage you to get outside more this year and enjoy all South Jordan has to offer for improving our health and quality of life.
