    Ooooh, I really like the sound of a freeride park in Boise.

    Since Ussery is getting developed, Sherman Street neighbors are getting pissed, and Willow is not looking pretty, This will be a welcome addition to the biking scene here.

    Anyone know if it's planned to be indoors or outdoors? Maybe it'll be a Ray's type of place with North Shore stuff all built up...

    If I understand correctly, this group is looking for land that is easily accessible by bike so obviously anything off the Greenbelt is ideal. There was a recent editorial in the Statesman and it mentioned that all of this will be outdoors unlike that Ray's thing where it's indoors.

    Since the Barber area is being developed, I was thinking that would be an ideal place for this thing to go in.

    isn't the barber pools area all wetlands?

    i know a lot of that land is owned by Idaho Parks and Rec...what kind of "development" are they planning? are we thinking of the same area?

    they are supposed to be building a new simplot park near my house...at pleasanton...and the greenbelt..just west of 27th street. i think that park is supposed to have ball fields and such..it's a pretty big area:

    With the passage of the big Boise school bond, isn't the Barber area where they are planning on putting the new East Jr. High as well as a new HS football stadium? Not sure of the exact location, but I was thinking that somewhere near there would be a good spot for this velodrome complex.
