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!

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.
It’s a Nice family town and very safe. Lacking in night life though. Schools around the area are usually very nice and clean with helpful staff. Schools aren’t very diverse but have special programs to be inclusive of the diversity. This town is very Mormon based so there aren’t many activities to do on Sunday. I would say summers are the best season for this town regarding activities but winter isn’t too bad either.
