14Oct2012_1h_KA_Park_The_PondIt seems like forever since they started the work on this park. And it has been at least a year. But finally, the complex is open and it is awesome! (See the sign below) Many walking and bike paths. Swimming areas, although not today! Boating. Picnic areas. 50 some acres that have been completely altered for the betterment of the public. Today was the Grand Opening and it was jammed. I’d say at least 1000 people there plus dignitaries. And this park will be open year around! Here are some photos from today. Enjoy!

Once there was a dump here. Now a beautiful park complex. This is why we love Boise.
