Brief Description

The Jordan River is a unique environmental and recreational amenity enjoyed by pedestrians, cyclists, and paddlers. In an effort to provide expanded infrastructure to support recreational users on the Jordan River, the Jordan River Water Trail project aims to create a series of formal boat access points at strategic locations throughout Salt Lake County. Among the first of these boat ramps to be created are four in Salt Lake City’s meandering, tree-lined section of the Jordan River, ranging from 1700 South to 1800 North. All four ramps will be open for use by the summer of 2021.

The Salt Lake City Art Design Board is pleased to pursue artwork which can respond to the natural environment of the river along with its recreational uses, visually link the four sites, and engage with the sites at the neighborhood level while celebrating the River’s essential significance to the Salt Lake region.
