Life’s a beach? Or half beach? City weighs options for Quinn’s Pond

The City of Boise’s Parks & Recreation department is considering plans for the future of Bernardine Quinn Riverside Park near the Boise River.

The park includes Quinn’s Pond – and is just east of the newly opened Esther Simplot Park.

The city hopes folks will weigh in on concepts for the park – including “natural play features,” site amenities and a trio of site design ideas.

Natural play feature ideas include logs to climb on, climbing rocks, stumps and more.

More than 35 site amenities are listed – ranging from pathways to bike racks to workout stations and fishing piers. (See them all here).

Three site design ideas are presented – one that would surround the pond with natural grasses and a picnic shelter, a second that would include some wetland/grasses space and some beach, and a third which would make nearly all of the park’s shore a beach.

The public can send feedback to Wendy Larimore, project coordinator – wlarimore@cityofboise.org or (208) 608-7636.
