Town and South of Town
The Town of Jackson was named in 1894 after Davey Jackson, who spent a winter in the late 1800s on Jackson Lake. Today, residents like to think of Jackson as the heart of the valley. Town is one of the most fun places to enjoy the Jackson Hole lifestyle with a bustling arts and culinary scene. Properties in town range from one bedroom condos to large family residences all within walking or biking distance to the town square.
The area known as South Park is the open expanse of land that spreads south from Jackson Hole High School and High School Road. South Park offers property that can feel separated from town, but is quite convenient to the bike path and services of town. It features relatively affordable neighborhoods such as Rafter J and Melody Ranch; as well as more high-end neighborhoods such as 3-Creek Ranch, the valley’s first completely private golf club, not to mention some of the last privately held ranch lands in Jackson Hole.
