The South Davis Recreation District is a governmental agency serving the South Davis County area. The District was organized pursuant to an approving vote of residents in 2005 and currently serves to meet the recreation needs of South Davis County through the operation of the South Davis Recreation Center and affiliated recreation programs. The District includes the cities of North Salt Lake, Woods Cross, Bountiful, West Bountiful and Centerville.
OUR COMMUNITY IS GROWING
As of early 2021, the South Davis Recreation District has grown by 12,000 residents since 2008 and expects to see an additional 30,000 new residents by 2050. The District believes it is time for the facilities to grow and expand to meet the current and growing demand of the community.
The South Davis Recreation District has put together a new Facilities Master Plan for the District and will be hosting open houses to provide information to residents on this proposed plan.

South Davis Recreation District Master Plan
The Recreation District completed a master plan between 2018 and 2020. This plan identifies current needs and improvements to meet the future recreation demands for the communities served.
The final recommendations of the master plan include the following:
· Improvements to the existing Recreation Center to ensure the facility is well maintained.
· Renovation and expansion of the existing Recreation Center
· A new second recreation center to better serve the residents on the west side of I-15 and accommodate the new growth and expanded desire for recreation within the district.
The Recreation District is looking to go out for a bond this fall. Some the key reasons for bonding for this upgrade and expansion are:
• Growth of the District by 12,000 residents since the Rec Center was built in 2008 and expects to see an additional 30,000 new residents by 2050.
• Some areas of the existing facility are showing signs of excessive wear and tear and are in need of upgrades to ensure a safe and pleasant facility experience for members.
• Community use of the facility remains high
• The current facilities limit the number of kids that can participate in key programs such as swimming, soccer and Jr. Jazz.
• The current Rec Center will not be able to accommodate the area’s projected population growth.
• It’s time for our recreation facilities to grow and expand to meet the current and future demand of the community.
The improvements will ensure the South Davis Recreation District can continue to effectively serve the aquatics, fitness, ice programming and recreation needs of the area for the 20-year future.
