Status: In Progress


Location

The Gene Day Pond project is located on the west end of Gene Day Park in Osburn, Idaho. Gene Day Park is a publicly-accessible city park.

Background

Gene Day Pond was contaminated with mine waste. In 2018, the contaminated soil was removed and the pond was reconstructed for recreational fishing.

Plans

This project increases safe public access to Gene Day Pond by constructing gravel paths, extending graveled areas along Yellowstone Ave., and creating more parking spaces for standard and ADA parking. A cover will be constructed over the outhouse.

Benefits

The Gene Day Pond project improves public access and safety in support of recreational access to a popular community fishery.
