The fun never stops in South Salt Lake (SSL)! Our youth/adult sports programs and events are some of the best in the state, providing high-quality and affordable fun. At the Recreation Department, we arrange many activities for residents of all ages - from a youth baseball club, to adult sports leagues, to the annual Senior Ball. After all, we're a small city with big opportunities!
