BOISE, Idaho — Phase two of Boise's Whitewater Park is taking shape.
Crews were working on the project Wednesday. The work includes adding three new features and diverting a portion of the Boise River.
Boise Parks and Recreation Director Doug Holloway says the Farmer's Union Irrigation Company has worked with the city to make that happen.
"They have allowed us to divert the water from the river into the canal, then it comes a little bit downstream, then back out into the river,” Holloway said. “Without that partnership, we would not be able to perform the construction that we're being able to do right now."
Construction on this second phase of the Whitewater Park began in October.
Holloway says it should be completed and open by mid-summer.
