Jensen's grove pond is perfect location for families and the city park is amazing! Their fireworks display on the fourth of July is one of the best I have ever seen or experienced. Definitely rivals some of the other big displays!
Review Blackfoot
I loved growing up in Blackfoot, Idaho. As a child my parents didn't fear for my safety while I walked to the local swimming pool or if I stayed out late to play in our neighborhood. Now that I'm older, I wish there was more for me to do with young adult clubs. I enjoy outdoor activities as well as crafting activities and it would be nice to have a community center or recreation center to fulfill those needs.
Blackfoot has a small town reputation. It has privately owned and operated businesses where you can go and often be called by name, if you frequent them. I would like to see a movie theater return to Blackfoot, but it does have a Performing Arts Center where plays, concerts, and other events take place.
