Welcome to Jordan River...
That's about all there is as far as a 'town' goes. Built on the backs of the logging industry of the early 1900's, it's now used mostly for recreation.
We were also celebrating the end of a long battle with locals pitted against big developement.
You see, Jordan River has long been a mecca for surfers. More so in the winter when the waves are bigger and winds charge up the surf. Mind you, all year, people have been coming here to camp and beachcomb and explore the area known for its amazing beaches and forests.
The area along the water was slated to be sold for BIG developement, including condominiums, high priced housing and lots of land clearing to do all of these projects.
When it seemed like all hope was gone, the municipal government finally stepped in (with a huge amount of pressure from locals and people near and far) and agreed to purchase over 2300 hectares and preserve the land for parkland. YEY!

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.
