Alpine City is located in the northern part of Utah County just at the base of the Mountain range, on the slopes of the Wasatch Range north of Highland and American Fork. Alpine was incorporated in 1850 and started out as a farming community. The city is one of the many quickly-growing cities in the County. The current census information states that Alpine has a population of 9,555 with 2,529 homes.
Alpine is home to many neighborhood parks, sports complexes, special use parks, community parks, and green ways and natural resource areas. Let’s not forget the number of mountain biking trails around the city that attract bikers from all over the state. There are also many trails and paths well suited for back-trail hiking along the mountains.
Alpine is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The city’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Alpine’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.
