  • Manti aims to be a beautiful, clean, and friendly small town that values the health of its residents. Community engagement is important to Manti, and citizens recently worked together to refurbish weather-torn tennis courts into new pickleball courts. Citizens also worked hard to design and add new biking trails to West Mountain. In addition, the city recently completed a Sports Park, which serves as a valuable location for community gatherings. Manti hosts yearly community events which bring together citizens and contribute to unity and positive mental health.
