Public Invited to View Centennial and Rainey Park Plans


The future of Pocatello’s Centennial and Rainey Parks is coming into view.

Thursday, April 19 from 4:45 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Pocatello Community Charter School, the City of Pocatello along with students from Utah State University’s Landscape Architecture program and local stakeholders will host an open house, debuting schematic designs for the Centennial Park area. Over the past 3 months, the group took feedback from the public on the parks and now, they’ve turned that feedback into drawings.

“We’re excited about their concepts and fresh ideas,” said Maggie Clark, Project Manager for the City of Pocatello. “So far, the students have incorporated an amphitheater, wetland with a boardwalk, outdoor classroom, two pavilions, as well as fishing and swimming areas. In addition, they have worked on beautifying the Benton Street Bridge and improving pedestrian/cyclist safety in that area. They’ve also looked at ways to unify the Old Town, Idaho State University, commercial, and Centennial/Rainey Park areas through plazas and public spaces.”

Following this round of feedback, the comments will be incorporated into design drawings that are produced by a professional design firm.

Residents who are unable to attend the open house can also see the drawings at the Portneuf Valley Environmental Fair. The fair will be held April 21 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Caldwell Park.

The Pocatello Community Charter School is accessible to persons with disabilities. Program access accommodations may be provided with three (3) days’ advance notice by contacting Skyler Beebe at; 208.234.6248; or 5815 South 5th Avenue, Pocatello, ID.
