The city of Boise has hired Apex to build a new restroom and 20-by-24-foot picnic shelter this fall at Terry Day Park, located at 1225 S. Federal Way.
The $201,000 project also includes the demolition of a vacant house on the east side of the park near Overland Road. The site ultimately will be a parking lot and accessible entrance to the park.
Two new tennis courts are also under construction at the park. The tennis courts are expected to be completed in October.
Right now, park amenities include a gravel pathway, fishing pond, open grassy play areas, parking lot, mature and newly planted trees, and picnic benches.
The park provides open space in a what Boise considers an underserved area of the community. A needs assessment identified a new park on the Bench as a top priority in the 2004 Boise Parks & Recreation Comprehensive Plan.
Terry Day Park was opened in 2013. The park site was created in 2006 when Patrick O. Day donated 7 acres of land to the City of Boise in honor of his late wife, Terry Day.
