Create Safe Access from Crescent Rim Drive:
The Peasley Stairway
This stairway with a bike runnel will connect Crescent Rim Drive with the park at Peasley Street. It will create safe, off-road access to the park and downtown Boise. A runnel is a grooved trough for cyclists to push their bicycles up or down.
We received an Open Spaces and Clean Water Committee grant which completes the funding of the project. Construction has commenced and our goal is to finish the project sometime in 2025. Click here for more details.
Restore the Clock Tower
To increase visibility, we will move the clock tower out of the sports fields to a location east of the fountain and give it a fresh coat of paint. We are planning a nostalgic feel by purchasing recreations of the four analog clock faces originally placed in the park by Ann Daly Morrison’s family.

Revamp Riverfront Area
This project is still in the planning stage so there are no concept drawings but we hope to redesign the rafter's takeout area to ease congestion and interference from the Green Belt. A long term goal will be to create river viewing areas.
Improve Park Entries
By adding a wave roofline entryway similar to designs found in Palm Springs, iconic home of mid-century modern design, we desire to keep the park's mid-century modern roots. We will also improve the entryways at Royal Boulevard and Ann Morrison Drive with signs that complement the grand entrance at Americana Boulevard.
