You asked: Pumpkins & Trees headed for empty Eagle Rd. lot

Editor’s note: One of the best parts about publishing BoiseDev is all the “Hey, what’s up with…” questions. You can always email me – don@boisedev.com, message me on Twitter, message me on Facebook, ask me on the street.

The corner of Ustick Rd. and Eagle Rd. is one of the remaining prime development lots in the booming part of West Ada County. Several folks have noticed activity in recent weeks.

The weeds on the lot have been cleaned up and dirt is moving — and a series of poles have been erected.

A new store? Restaurant? 

The flurry of activity is to prepare for a pumpkin patch and Christmas tree lot from Stu Miller’s Seasonal Adventures, Inc., according to filings with the City of Meridian.

The lots in California and Nevada feature a slew of activities – including “a bungee jump, mechanical rides, games, petting zoo, inflatable jump house, giant inflatable slides, and huge inflatable obstacle courses.”

The lots even feature birthday parties and field trips.

During the Halloween season, the main attraction is pumpkins of all types for sale.

As Christmas approaches, the focus switches to trees brought in from Oregon.

No announcement on an opening date just yet.
