Designation Year: 2021

Marriott-Slaterville is nestled among an extensive trail system which connects cities throughout Weber County. Local trailheads lead to the entire Centennial Trail System and feed into the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, providing ample opportunities to walk, run, and bike. Marriott-Slaterville supports active living by sponsoring free and low-cost community sports/fitness programs for adults and children. To ensure that all residents have access to healthy foods, Marriott-Slaterville secured property for a future year-round farmers market, which will be the first of its kind in Northern Utah.
