Frequently Asked Questions
Why is Salt Lake County assuming operations of the South Jordan Fitness & Aquatics Center?
This transition is part of a partnership between the County and South Jordan City to enhance recreation services in South Jordan. Transferring management of the Fitness Center will allow the City to share ownership of the future Bingham Creek Regional Park, which the County will break ground on this spring. It will also allow Salt Lake County to maintain programming in the area, following the closure of Marv Jenson Recreation Center on March 31.
How does this benefit patrons of the Fitness Center and residents of South Jordan?
Patrons and residents will continue to have a variety of recreation services available from both the City and the County, as well as more options to utilize Salt Lake County Recreation facilities across the valley.
Will I still be able to take my favorite classes, taught by my favorite instructors?
The Fitness Center has a vibrant class schedule. Salt Lake County has no plans to eliminate existing classes and has offered positions to all current instructors. Our goal is to retain current classes, programs, and staff to make the transition as smooth as possible.
Will the County offer any programs that are different than the current options at the Fitness Center?
The County offers adaptive recreation opportunities and will bring some additions to youth sports programming, including Jr. Jazz, which will be offered next season.
What will happen to the recreation programs South Jordan City runs outside of the Fitness Center?
Salt Lake County will take on the programs and events in the Fitness Center, and run a few outdoor youth sports programs (like flag football and t-ball) that the City does not currently operate. South Jordan City will continue to run their outdoor youth and adult recreation programs as well as their community classes and special events (such as 5k races).
Is Salt Lake County going to add a lap pool to the Fitness Center?
There are ongoing discussions with the City and Jordan School District, regarding the feasibility of a pool expansion addition. We will keep patrons and residents informed of any developments on the possibility.
