Dona Larsen Park

Where this entrance to Dona Larson Park is now was a junior high school when I was growing up.  Kids in the east end side of Boise were able to walk to school. A few years back the school district sold the land to Boise State University.  The University had the school removed and this park built in its place which seems to be closed to the public and used exclusively by the university athletic department.  Students are now bused to school.
