900 N. 6th St., Boise
Memorial Park is a small 7-acre neighborhood park located in northeast Boise.
Recently, Boise Parks and Recreation surveyed the neighborhood about their preferences on updating the existing master plan and the potential to add a new amenity (or several) to the park. Below are the tallied results from the comments we received.
After analysis of all input received, 83 out of the total 163 respondents (50%) recommended no changes to the park. Approximately 56% of respondents (91 total) supported the addition of a drinking fountain to the park.
The estimated cost of adding a drinking fountain is $10,000. The fountain will feature high and low spigots, a bottle filler, dog bowl, water line and a small concrete pad in close proximity of the existing restroom. Installation will be completed this fall.
We are grateful to all neighborhood respondents for their interest in the Memorial Park master plan revision process.
