On the foothills of the Oquirrh mountains, once sleepy farmland is now home to Salt Lake’s youngest and fastest growing population. The Wasatch Mountains tower to the east creating spectacular vistas framed by idyllic horse property. Starkly contrasting the farmland are new homes and commercial developments dotting the landscape.
With the stress of imposing urbanization, South Jordan invests heavily in parks and open space. They currently host 35 city parks, 2 county parks, more than 9 miles of trails, 3 fishing ponds, and 250 acres of natural open space surrounding South Jordan’s oldest and newest properties.
South Jordan residents enjoy a higher-than average quality of life. Master-planned communities integrate public transportation, shopping, parks and trails, and eco-friendly housing options. Big-box retailers, national chains, and real estate developers continue to invest heavily in this fast-growing, popular Salt Lake suburb. Compared to other Salt Lake neighborhoods, South Jordan provides a reasonable cost of living. The average home cost is $405,899 and cost per square foot, $174.
