I like how Murray is an inclusive city. The neighborhoods are friendly and kind. The people are very active. There are many walking paths along canals and through parks for people to use to exercise. There are many free activities for people to do. Many of the libraries and parks that they have within Murray provide this. Murray has many programs for a variety of interests that people can participate in. They are festive, they have one of the best firework shows at Murray Park. They also have a neat parade. Murray encompasses a loving and outreaching community. Which allows you to get to know more people within your own community.

One thing Murray could improve on is it’s construction. The construction is always long and a slow process. It delays many people’s days and others that are from the city Murray.

I've worked in this city for the past four years and love the atmosphere, shopping, and medical facilities that are close by. It is very family friendly with many parks and recreation either in the city or a short distance away. I am currently looking for a home in this area as it will be a closer commute for me. All major freeways are also easy access in this area. Great City!
Murray is a suburb of Salt Lake City. There are many great things about Murray. Murray citizens have great access to freeway entrances. Nothing is more than a 20 minute drive away. The mall is at a central location for those who love to shop and for those who like to stay fit the recreation center is only a five minute drive from the mall. Since Murray has great access to shops, restaurants, etc. there are also many opportunities for people to find work. I LOVE MURRAY!
