It’s really best to think of all of Jackson as one neighborhood, as it exudes a sense of hospitality that makes even the most temporary of visitors feel like part of the community. There are technically three sections of town, but the distinction is mostly geographical.
Karns Meadow: The most recent addition to Jackson, the meadow has been turned into a community park. Grassy areas punctuated by fish-filled ponds make the meadow an idyllic place to play and relax. Karns Meadow is also the site of a parking lot, the purpose of which is to allow people to park their cars and ride Jackson’s public bus system. While placing a parking lot in a meadow seems unnatural, the “Park & Ride” helps ease traffic and preserve the natural beauty of other areas of Jackson.
Flat Creek: This is the region surrounding Jackson’s very own creek, which actually flows into Wyoming’s Snake River. There’s water in Flat Creek year round, and actually, floods used to be a problem until preventive measures were adopted to protect the nearby buildings. Residential and business districts line the creek, making it an ideal place to explore.
Downtown: This is where the town’s major industries and civic buildings are located. Downtown Jackson boasts a large theater, an art museum, and a Farmer’s Market as well as rows of small supermarkets and other businesses. Walking or biking around town is easy, and buses run regularly.
