SIOUX CITY — The Sioux City Council will be asked Monday to award a $214,000 contract to a Sioux City contractor for the Riverside Family Aquatics Center Pool House renovation project.

The project includes the renovation of the 2,180-square-foot existing pool house facility and the construction of a 300-square-foot storage building and staff break area.

The renovation of the pool house will create two accessible shower spaces, changing areas and bathroom stalls, according to city documents.

W.A. Klinger, LLC submitted a base bid of $198,000 and a bid of $16,000 for alternate 1, an electrical upgrade, which is 6 percent above the architect’s estimate of $211,000.

City Of Boise Celebrates Bernadine Quinn Riverside Park Improvements

September 30, 2020

Mayor Lauren McLean, members of the Boise City Council and leaders from the Parks and Recreation Department gathered along the south shore of Quinn’s Pond today, September 30, 2020, to dedicate brand-new amenities at Bernardine Quinn Riverside Park. The 3.5-acre addition to the park is located just off the Boise River Greenbelt along the southern edge of the pond, with parking accessible at 3150 W. Main Street.

This site expands popular recreational offerings at Quinn’s Pond with improved river access, bank stabilization and recreational opportunities for visitors. The initial green-up phase has been completed and the park includes a covered shelter with seating, new walking paths and landscaping.

“This is an exciting addition to our park system at a time when recreational opportunities are more important than ever,” said Mayor McLean. “Boise’s parks and outdoor spaces are free and accessible to everyone and the mental and physical health benefits can’t be overstated.”

Quinn’s Pond and adjacent Esther Simplot Park have become popular year-round recreation destinations. Both parks are part of the city’s popular “Ribbon of Jewels” – properties given to the City of Boise in honor of some of Boise’s finest civic leaders.

Bernardine Quinn Riverside Park and Quinn’s Pond are located at the former site of Quinn Robbins heavy construction company’s gravel operation. Land for the park and recreational area was donated to the City of Boise in 1997. This dedication and ribbon cutting marks the most recent improvements made to the park, which also includes the dock and beach on the north side of the pond.
