Bridge beautifies Croy Canyon

Congratulations to the Wood River Land Trust on completing the restoration and beautification of the river banks near Lions Park and the stunning Bow Bridge! It is truly a miracle that they have turned what used to be a dump and trashed area into a family-friendly park with walking and bike trails as well as access to the Draper Preserve and the restored wetlands there. Of course, it didn’t happen “miraculously” but with much dedicated hard work and volunteer effort, and the excellent leadership of Scott Boettger.  

It was a beautiful fall day on Saturday, Oct. 6, for a community celebration of this newest asset to our Wood River Valley neighborhood, and the Bow Bridge will certainly be the “crown jewel” in a natural area that will undoubtedly be enjoyed by many locals as well as visitors in the years to come.  

We on the Croy Canyon Ranch Foundation board salute their accomplishment, and are delighted that the Nordic ski trails created by the Blaine County Recreation District and Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation will connect our two properties for winter use. Along with the Animal Shelter, which is across the street from our proposed senior living community, all these amenities can work together to make this a healthier community.

  Thanks from all of us for creating such a wonderful community asset. We are pleased with the future vision of the above organizations, and encourage our fellow citizens to continue to support the building of Croy Canyon Ranch Continuing Care Retirement Community in Croy Canyon.
