There’s a spinning net climber and nine-foot climbing boxes. Other new features at the park include artificial turf, Trex composite-wood benches and trash can holders, as well as a water-efficient irrigation system. The city of Boise paid for the $117,000 project.

Construction is scheduled to begin this winter on the final phase of park development.  Improvements will include a splash pad with fountains, a “dumping” bucket and a 36-inch orb, as well as a restroom, shelter, renovated barn and a new community garden. Money for this phase is provided by private donations.Comba Park Splash Pad, Boise, ID_250x162

The completed park is expected to be open early next summer.

Comba Park is a 3.2-acre site located near the intersection of Ustick and Five Mile. The property was donated to the City of Boise in 2000 by the Comba family. The neighborhood park was identified as a high priority for the West Bench in the 2011 Boise Parks & Recreation Comprehensive Plan.

More information about the park is available here.
