As long as the name "Jack's Urban Meeting Place" has been in the mouths of Treasure Valley residents, I've been dying to know what it is.  Diane from JUMP gave us the grand tour!

During the tour Diane told us that the slides that everyone has been so curious about will probably open sometime this fall.  She also showed us the large jumbotron built into the new Simplot headquarters next door that will be used to show movies, football games and more to people enjoy JUMP and it's park area.  Oh, and if you're wondering why there isn't any grass in the park yet, it's because the park is being built on top of a 600 car underground parking garage! The park is being built in phases, including putting in giant Styrofoam puzzle pieces to help control the weight of the grass and moisture in it so that it doesn't crush the garage.

If you want to take a look around yourself, JUMP's lobby and public areas are open Tuesday-Friday from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.  Find out more about classes and more offered at JUMP by clicking HERE.
