Just past the building on the left of the picture (Boise Center), the Grove Plaza that has been closed for months for renovations, is ready to welcome back people for numerous activities. 

The Grove Plaza is an important place in the middle of Downtown Boise.  It's hosted many city celebrations, parties, Christmas Tree Lightings, concerts, and other cultural events.  It is also the home for the Downtown Boise Association's Alive After Five Wednesday concert and gathering events.

The Plaza has been under construction in varies capacities over the past three years as the underground transit center was added, convention spaces expanded, and new construction completed.

The renovated Plaza offers a redesigned fountain, free wifi, a mobile stage for events, upgraded sound and lights, additional shaded areas, and perhaps the most famous feature of the space, the bricks with names of donors.  Those bricks have been refurbished, maintaining the original donor names and adding new bricks for the new donors.

The Idaho Statesman took a deep look at the space and what's changed.  You can find that story, HERE.
