PICS: Riverside’s Sandbar revamps for summer 2017

Idaho AGC Going Up

Under local ownership, The Riverside Hotel has put in a number of upgrades – and has spent considerable effort building up its riverfront Sandbar.

The popular spot in the summer offers outdoor dining and drinking just a few feet from the Boise River on the Greenbelt in Garden City.

A new bar has been installed along with expanded seating adjacent to the existing area.

The Riverside has also put in a number of upgrades along the river, including reseeding the bank, adding steps so folks can get in and out, and a number of musical note-shaped bike racks.

Sandbar is set for a May seasonal opening.

Separately, the Riverside is revamping its entry – crews are at work overhauling the portico.
