DeMeyer pathway construction began April 1
The project to replace an aging asphalt pathway from DeMeyer Park to Hewlett-Packard began April 1 in West Boise.
Clearwater Landscape & Irrigation of Nampa will remove an existing asphalt path and replace it with a 10-foot wide concrete path. The area will be closed to pedestrian traffic for the duration of the project, which is expected to be completed by May 11. The $118,000 project is funded by the City of Boise.
The pathway, which links DeMeyer Park to HP, is popular with bicycle commuters in West Boise.
Signs will mark a recommended detour via sidewalks.
For information, please contact Kelly Burrows, Development Coordinator, at email@example.com or call 208-608-7634.
DeMeyer Park is a large neighborhood park located in West Boise. The park is 12 acres and complete with picnic areas, volleyball court, basketball court, and a playground.
The 10-acre parcel that is now DeMeyer Park was given to the city in 1977 by Albert and Hazel DeMeyer. The park is the site of the original ranch home with barns, silo and pond.
A plaque in the park says: "DeMeyer Park In Honor of Our Children Arlen, Eugene, Joanna dedicated to children may they play here in freedom with harmony and happiness"
Joanna "Jody" DeMeyer later contributed more than $200,000 for the design of a shelter/restroom structure.
Demeyer Park has kindly been adopted by the Shaeffer House of the Ambrose School. Schaeffer House is a group dedicated to the betterment of the community, diligent in service and is always striving for excellence in all areas of life.
The Adopt-A-Park program gives churches, civic organizations, local businesses, and other community groups the opportunity to adopt their neighborhood park. Adopting groups will commit to maintaining their park for a renewable one-year term, helping with things such as eradicating graffiti, picking up litter, filling mutt-mitt dispensers, painting site amenities, raking leaves, and mulching trees and planting beds. In exchange, the Department recognizes the group as the adopting agency via our website and signage at the park.
