7/8/20 - The public survey is now closed. We appreciate everyone that provided feedback on the renaming! We will post an update following the Advisory Board's recommendation to the County Council.
On April 1st 2020, Salt Lake County began operating the South Jordan Fitness and Aquatic Center. Upon approval of the operating agreement between the County and South Jordan City and the closure of the former Marv Jenson Recreation Center, the Salt Lake County Council passed a motion to rename the fitness & aquatic facility the “Marv Jenson Recreation Center.”
