Once known as the “Egg Basket of Utah,” the city of Draper used to be home to more chickens than people. Although it retains a wholesome, small-town atmosphere, modern Draper is no longer a rural, farming community. Nestled between the metropolitan cities of Salt Lake City and the Provo/Orem area, Draper is a Mecca of suburban living. Nearly 28,000 residents enjoy the closeness to big city amenities, while reveling in the city’s country charm. Home to several high-tech companies including eBay Corporation, Draper also enjoys close proximity to numerous recreational and cultural possibilities. The city is located within 20 minutes of major ski resorts such as Snowbird, Alta, Solitude and Brighton, and is also within an hour of Park City, Deer Valley and Snow basin -- resort venues for the recent 2002 Olympic Winter Games. In honor of its pioneer heritage, Draper has always been deeply appreciative of the arts. In fact, Draper Elementary schoolchildren continue to buy at least one piece of original art each year to display at the school. Draper is part of the Jordan School District, the largest in the state and one of the nation’s top 50 school districts. More than 73,000 students in grades pre-K through 12 are served. Surrounded by the Rocky Mountains, Draper provides a panoramic view of nature’s splendor from every hilltop, valley or downtown neighborhood. Graced by numerous aesthetically pleasing neighborhood parks, such as Draper City Park, Akagi Farms Trailhead, the Andy Ballard Equestrian Center and Draper Historical Park, city residents experience suburban living with a unique, hometown heritage.
