Great fun to share with the whole family. Spend the day in rented tubes lazily floating from the park through the down town area.A lot of singing,visiting with other families who float by as you go. This is not the rapids, this is drifting.

This was a natural habitat for a lot of birds including eagles and owls, deer, beaver, badger, and a lot of others. Ada County has ruined that by putting in office buildings, an event center, expanding the raft rental building including parking and storage of...More

Community center is beautiful for a large group of people, up to 200. Spring, summer, and fall, the facility is well lit by the natural sunlight from outside. The inside is air conditioned. Nice for teas, weddings, and more.
