R Park Construction Update

May 21, 2014 by parkdirector

Clouds reflect on R Park's pondConstruction is in full swing – R Park is slated to open late summer.  More specifically:

  • The three ponds are almost fully shaped, with the largest being 455 feet at its widest – that’s large enough to swim, kayak, and even stand-up paddleboard!

  • Five large knolls ranging from 12 to 25 feet in height are being shaped to serve as features for recreation and exploration.

  • R Park’s bike path that connects to the Snake River pathway bridge is in progress.

  • 1,000 additional feet of Snake River access will exist via R Park’s levee.

  • Seeing that our community needed support, R Park donated pit run (gravel) to help with stabilization efforts at the Budge slide site.

  • Moose, elk, deer, beavers, eagles, and ospreys have been spotted at R Park – don’t forget your binocs!
