Revitalizing downtown Twin Falls has been a process for several years. One of the first projects tackled was revamping the fountain in old town. The original Main Avenue Foundation Plaza was located at the corner of Hansen and Main.
It featured concrete rectangular structures made of concrete surrounded by a small pool of running water and a simple waterfall-like effect. In 2015 the fountain was moved to its current location across the street at the former Rogerson Hotel site. The fountain area was completely redesigned and named the Downtown Commons.
The Foundation’s Board of Directors approved this project, and 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. These funds helped with the development of the $2 million dollar project. The project has a splash park, plenty of space for seating, and a stage for public events.
The dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony for the Downtown Commons took place on July 6, 2018, in front of a large crowd of supporters and donors.
This project was a huge endeavor and wouldn’t have been possible without support from the community. We send a big THANK YOU to all of those that made this project possible.
