What’s new MAYOR’S MESSAGE Kids Walk to Better Health in 2013 When we launched the Walk 150 challenge in January, I didn’t foresee the excitement this program would generate in our community -- particularly the enthusiasm it generated within Boise schools. Walk 150’s goal was to encourage citizens of all ages to walk 150 miles in honor of the city’s 2013 sesquicentennial. Boise schools were invited to participate in contests in the spring and fall. Winning schools with the highest total miles and greatest percentage of participation each received prizes provided by Let’s Move Boise and also received a visit from me. The response was stunning. In the recent fall challenge -- a program that ran from Sept. 25-Nov. 8 -- kids at 14 Boise public schools walked 16,587 miles. Adams Elementary School won the title for most miles walked with 2,405. Monroe Elementary received the participation award; every student participated in the six-week walking program. Other schools that participated in the program include Amity, Garfield, Morley Nelson, Highlands, Owyhee, Maple Grove, Whitney, Hidden Springs, Whittier, and Koelsch elementary schools and North Junior High. Cynthia Mann Elementary had 100% participation in a PTO-sponsored run/walk fundraiser. During the Walk 150 spring challenge, schoolchildren walked a total of 9,087 miles, with Jefferson taking the award for highest total miles with an astonishing 3,965. Whittier Elementary was the winner in total participation with 75%. School staff members praise the program for getting kids outside and active during the school day. Research shows that physical activity and occasional “brain breaks” benefit student achievement in the classroom. At some schools, staff members got more than expected out of the Walk 150 program.

“This challenge has been a wonderful opportunity for positive peer interactions among our students and for myself, as Garfield’s behavior interventionist, to build rapport and get to know the students on a whole new level,” said Mishelle Murphy. “I have also had some very positive feedback from parents who told me that this was the first time their 5th grade son has even taken an interest in physical activity.” It is heartwarming to hear about these incredible benefits that the Walk 150 challenge generated within our schools. Thousands of Boise kids took the steps to get healthy, and we are making progress in our efforts to combat childhood obesity. And kids weren’t the only ones to sign on to Walk 150. Adults competing in the business challenge walked more than 65,000 miles throughout the year. Many other citizens who walked in their neighborhood parks and Foothills trails also logged their miles into the website tracker at www.walk150.org. Our thanks for the financial support of the Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation for Health, the organizational skills of the Let’s Move Boise coalition, and Boise Parks & Recreation. Additional sponsors include BOISE 150, the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce, and The Idaho Statesman. It has been a great year for BOISE 150 and all the sesquicentennial activities. Let’s keep on walking. Sincerely,

Dave H. Bieter

what’s new at BOISE PARKS & RECREATION

Let’s play! New playground opens at Comba Park

West Boise kids have a unique new playground to enjoy at Comba Park, 2995 N. Five Mile. The colorful, non-traditional play equipment will get kids spinning, bouncing and climbing. Designed for ages 2-12, the playground features a spinning net climber and 9-foot climbing boxes. The $117,000 project was funded by the City of Boise. The final phase of construction of the park will be completed this spring with a grand opening celebration slated for June 2014.

Zoo Boise director named VP of national group Steve Burns, director of Zoo Boise, has been elected vice chair of the board of directors of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). As a member of the board, Burns will be involved in every aspect of the national organization, including accreditation, ethics, animal welfare, and conservation.

WINTER|SPRING 2014

Terry Day Park opens on the Boise Bench Kids from nearby Hawthorne Elementary School joined Mayor David Bieter and the Day family for the opening of Terry Day Park on Oct. 15. The 7-acre neighborhood park at 1225 S. Federal Way features a gravel pathway rimming a fishing pond, open grassy areas, mature and newly planted trees, picnic benches and a parking lot. The $575,000 project was funded by the City of Boise. A 2012 Neighborhood Reinvestment Grant awarded to the Depot Bench Neighborhood Association will be used to build a tennis racquet-shaped flower garden with a covered trellis. The park site was donated in 2006 by Patrick O. Day in honor of his late wife, Terry. Pat Day passed away Nov. 1 at age 88 -- just two weeks after the park was officially opened. To learn more about the park, see parks.cityofboise.org.

Art Center receives grant for new enameling kiln A $750 grant from the national Enamelist Society has helped fund a new kiln and supplies for the Art Center at Fort Boise Community Center, 700 Robbins Road. The Art Center’s new enameling instructor, Barbara Louise Bowling, submitted the grant proposal in conjunction with the city. “We are really grateful to Barbara for taking the initiative to seek funds and provide materials for this popular art form,” said Chris Kranz, Art Center director. Twelve students are enrolled this fall in the city’s first enameling class. For information, please contact Kranz at ckranz@cityofboise.org or (208) 608-7680.

Participants will learn something new and develop skills in critical thinking, adaptability, and a positive outlook about Lindy Hop, an era of music and dance that has nearly fallen out of existence. The Lindy Hop is an American dance that evolved in Harlem, New York City in the 1920s and 11930S. Considered the “hip hop” of its day, Lindy Hop has a dynamic history and reveals so much about our country’s own struggles and triumphs. Class will consist of history and evolution of Lindy Hop with warm-ups, team-building exercises, exploring different techniques, drills and ultimately, a choreographed routine to perform!

TEN & UNDER TENNIS 6-8 & 9-11 YRS

Kids can learn the game of tennis using modified tennis balls on smaller courts in the Fort Boise Community Center gym. Balls are lower in compression: they bounce lower and don’t move as fast. This gives kids time to get to the ball and helps them develop optimal swing patterns. Racquets are sized for small hands and the courts are small and easier to cover. *No classes during spring break.

boise greenbelt BOISE RIVER GREENBELT One of Boise’s most popular parks, the Greenbelt meanders along the Boise River for 25 miles in the City of Boise. The pathway links more than a dozen major parks providing open space, recreational access and wildlife habitat in the heart of the city. While it is difficult to determine exactly how many people use the Greenbelt, there is no doubt that it is one of the most widely used amenities in the Treasure Valley. A favorite of bikers, skaters, walkers and runners, the pathway also accommodates commuters who use it as an alternative transportation route.

E-NEWSLETTER Get updates on construction projects, repairs and the latest on expansion efforts in a free enewsletter delivered to your email box! Sign up at http://parks.cityofboise.org by clicking on “Parks & Locations” then “Greenbelt.”

HISTORIC SIGNS In honor of the city’s sesquicentennial celebration, Boise Parks & Recreation is working with Mark Baltes of Boise-based Landmark Impressions to refurbish historic signs along the pathway. The signs help turn the Greenbelt into a four-season outdoor classroom for learning about the area’s rich cultural and environmental past. Learn about geothermal water, early

aviation service, the Davis family apple orchards, the founding of Boise Cascade Corp. and much more. Originally installed in 1990 for the state’s centennial celebration, the renovated signs will be installed by late 2013.

GREENBELT ETIQUETTE Please observe the following courtesies and safety guidelines. • Stay only on designated trails. • Pedestrians have the right of way at all times. Cyclists and in-line skaters must yield to pedestrians. • All Greenbelt users should stay to the right and use caution under bridges and at blind corners where vision could be impaired. • Pedestrians should not walk more than two abreast. • Motorized vehicles are prohibited (except for maintenance, police patrol and vehicles for people with disabilities) • Non-paved sections are restricted to foot traffic only. • Dogs are allowed only on a leash of 8 feet or less. Dog owners are responsible for picking up after their pets. • Cyclists and in-line skaters should maintain speeds safe for conditions. • A person passing other users should notify them with a bike bell or a phrase. • Don’t harass or encroach on wildlife. Disturbing or collecting any vegetation or natural habitat along the Greenbelt is prohibited. A colorful map updated in May 2013 showcases new additions to the pathway, points of interest, pedestrian bridges, parking locations and other valuable resources for users of the 25-mile Boise River Greenbelt pathway within the city limits.
