The Westside Downtown Urban Park will provide a place for people to connect with the outdoors on a daily basis, serve as a hub for community events, and enhance the urban lifestyle of downtown employees, residents, shoppers and visitors.
The park site is surrounded by surface parking lots that detract from downtown’s vibrancy, walkability and economic vitality. Making this public investment will catalyze private investment in housing, dining, office, and neighborhood services next to and near the public park. There is on-street (metered) parking available.
Situated along a bicycle corridor to and from downtown, the park will provide amenities that enhance the downtown pedestrian and cycling experience with streetscape improvements and key features including:
- A large, tree-lined green space
- Public art by artist Matthew Mazzotta
- Shaded seating
- New streetscapes along all three street frontages
- Pedestrian alley with limited auto access
- Public restrooms
- Places to store bikes
Park restrooms and park drinking fountains are turned off for the winter.
The park at 11th and Bannock is named after trailblazing Idahoan Cherie Buckner-Webb.
Buckner-Webb has spent her career breaking down barriers. She was the first Black woman elected to the Idaho Legislature, serving in the state House of Representatives from 2010 to 2012 and then serving three terms in the Idaho State Senate, wrapping up her final term in 2020. Read more here.
