(North Ogden City Hall)
The City of North Ogden is located in Weber County, about 6 miles from Ogden, at the base of Ben Lomond Peak. As of the 2010 census, the population was 17,357. Originally settled by cattle ranchers in 1850, North Ogden was incorporated in 1934. The city honors its rich heritage by collecting, preserving, and displaying items of historical significance at the North Ogden Historical Museum. The city has also installed brown historical street signs at the beginning and end of historical streets above the current green ones.
One of the most anticipated annual community events in North Ogden since 1932 is Cherry Days. Even though cherry orchards no longer line the countryside, the tradition that has always been an important part of the landscape and economy is kept alive through this celebration that includes parades, 5K Fun Run, pie eating contest, car show, baseball games, entertainment, volleyball tournament, rodeo, and fireworks. Other community events include an annual Easter Egg Hunt, a community garden, and a Christmas celebration. In addition, Bicentennial Park becomes the temporary home of a North Pole Express mailbox in December. All letters mailed to Santa receive a response.
The North Ogden Parks and Recreation Department maintains beautiful parks and trails, and the North Shore Aquatic Center offers a waterpark, swimming lessons, training, certification, and fitness programs. The city also offers baseball, football, kickball, soccer, races, t-ball, tennis, softball, volleyball, and winter sports. The North View Senior Center offers a variety of programs and social activities for senior citizens over the age of 55. The entire community of North Ogden can keep abreast of events, news, and happenings through the city’s Facebook Page.
North Ogden continues to show a commitment to caring for and managing its public trees. The Arbor Day Foundation has designated North Ogden as a “Tree City, USA” for the past six years. The Tree City USA is a national program that provides the framework for community forestry management. Cities achieve this status by meeting core standards, such as maintaining a tree board or department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita or urban forestry, and celebrating Arbor Day.
With the beautiful mountains close by, year-round outdoor activities are always available. A popular trail, accessible from four different trailheads, passes over the summit of Ben Lomond Peak, one of the most famous peaks in the Northern Wasatch Mountains. An interesting side note: The Paramount Pictures logo, known as Majestic Mountain, is rumored to be modeled after Mount Ben Lomond. North Ogden allows for easy access to an abundance of other outdoor activities including mountain biking, climbing, fishing, skiing, snowboarding, and more. Additional shopping and recreational opportunities lie just down the street in Ogden, including the Children’s Treehouse Museum, Peery’s Egyptian Theater, the Newgate Mall, and Ben Lomond Golf Course.
