[ARCHIVED] Mayor’s Corner: How to Stay Healthy and Happy in South Jordan

Mayor's Corner Dawn R. Ramsey

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.
