If You Live In Idaho, You Must Visit This Amazing City Park

When it comes to family-friendly destinations, Idaho has no shortage of manicured parks, refreshing swimming holes, museums, and dozens of other activities to enjoy on a warm summer’s day – or any season, really! But while our municipal parks often offer easy getaways, Porter Park in Rexburg is particularly special. Not only is it an expansive, lush park with plenty of play options; it’s also home to a rare vintage American treasure: a 100-year old wooden carousel – the only one of its kind in Idaho. Check it out!

If you’re ever in Eastern Idaho and looking for a place that the whole family can enjoy, Porter Park is a wonderful option. If you’ve ever been here or have any memories or stories to share, please let us know!
