You can count me as one of those people who left Boise only to return years later with a deeper appreciation for the Treasure Valley. In comparison to a place like Peoria Illinois, Boise is a million dollar mansion compared to an abandoned trailer park with an abundance of drugs and crime. One of the major differences between the two cities is the abundance of parks and "green space" we have access to in Boise. One of my favorite, Albertson's park and now one of the best parks in the city might be getting some upgrades, and the city is looking for your input.

KTVB reports Doug Halloway, director of Boise Parks and Rec says "It's time do a little facelift, nothing major."

A "faceift," in my opinion, is a good thing for the park and the area. The article says the park was designed in the 80's so just like everything else in our city, why not update the parks.

There's an open house Thursday evening from 5:30 to 7:30 at the Boise Depot where the public can review the concept ask questions and give feedback.
