The Jordan River Parkway is an approximately 40-mile (64 km) urban park that runs along the Jordan River within the US state of Utah. The parkway follows along the river from Utah Lake in Utah County, through Salt Lake County and onto the Great Salt Lake in Davis County. The majority of a mixed-use trail has been completed with a shared-use path for cyclists and joggers. A separate equestrian path runs on the southern portion of the trail. Many trail-heads, city and county parks and golf courses are also located along the parkway.
A section of the Jordan River Trail runs through Gardner Village, Murray Parkway Golf Course, Walden Park, Germania Park, Arrowhead Park, James Madison Park, Redwood Nature Area, and Redwood Trailhead Park.
The trail is great for walking, running, biking, and blading, and can be used to get from one part of the city to another without having to worry too much about car traffic. Picnic tables, restrooms, park benches, and canoe marinas can be found all along the parkway. Many stops serve as great areas for birdwatching.
