West Haven City (Weber) is located approximately thirty-five miles north of Salt Lake City, west of the Wasatch Mountains in Northern Utah. The confluence of the Weber and Ogden rivers is located inside the north-eastern corner of the city. The city is bordered on the east by Ogden, on the south by Roy and on the west by Hooper and on the north by Slaterville. The City was incorporated July 1, 1991.
On July 4th, 2003 the city marked the 10th annual West Haven Days celebration. The yearly event, held in the West Haven City Park and hosted by the mayor, city council and members of the city parks committee, begins at 7:00AM with a flag ceremony followed by a breakfast and an auction. Other activities throughout the day include: a variety of booths, food vendors, games, entertainment, a car show, a rodeo and fireworks.
West Haven bosts a City Park which includes an Historical Monument. Future plans provide for a River Parkway Trail that would include a fishing bridge, a pedestrian tunnel under 21st Street, picnic tables, places to rest and points of historical interest. Plans have this trail connect with the Weber County Centennial Trail.
