From the establishment of the Twin Falls Community Foundation the board of directors has been working on redevelopment of the Main Avenue Fountain Plaza. The redevelopment was officially named the Downtown Commons. In 2015 the project was relocated across the street to the site of the old Rogerson Hotel. The original design was modified to better complement a major redevelopment of three blocks of Main Ave and the remodel of a building across the street to a new City Hall.
On Jan 29, 2018 Twin Falls Community Foundation Chairman Leonard Anderson presented a check to the City of Twin Falls for $119, 021.65 to help in the development of the 2 million dollar Downtown Commons project.
Dedication and a ribbon cutting ceremony took place on July 6, 2018.
To help make the dedication of the park even more special Miles Dasher skydived into the park area. See video below.
