City of Twin Falls and First Federal Bank Announce Revitalization of Park

Popular First Federal Bank Park to receive updates ahead of busy summer season. 

The City of Twin Falls and First Federal Bank have jointly announced two large projects that will occur soon at First Federal Bank Park located at Sunway Soccer Complex, just off North College Road and Sunway Drive. Beginning on Monday, May 20 work will get underway replacing the current playground surface as well as reconstructing the Park’s splash pad. The schedule calls for installation of the new playground surface to be completed by Saturday, June 1, and the new splash pad tentatively being available for use on June 15.

“We know the splash pad is a hugely popular recreation area during the summer, so we’re hoping to have both it and the playground reopened by mid-June,” said Twin Falls Mayor Ruth Pierce.

“We are proud to partner with the City of Twin Falls on this significant work at First Federal Bank Park,” stated Jason Meyerhoeffer, President and CEO of First Federal Bank. “For nearly a decade, the Park has served Twin Falls and the broader community, becoming a favorite gathering spot. It has especially developed into a destination for families and children, seeing extensive use and enjoyment. This popularity, over the years, has necessitated the planned updates.”

Both the City of Twin Falls and First Federal Bank are contributing funds to complete the projects. To meet the construction schedule, and make sure both the playground and splash pad are available before the height of summer, First Federal Bank Park will be closed starting Friday, May 17.

“Thanks to our community for their understanding and patience while we prioritize safety, making the necessary repairs to the playground turf and splash pad,” added Pierce. “We want to ensure children have a safe and fun place to play.”

In 2015, First Federal Bank donated the park to the City of Twin Falls, helping to mark the 100-year anniversary of First Federal serving Southern Idaho. The park includes an all-inclusive playground and the first splash pad in Twin Falls.
