Officials with the City of Boise Parks and Recreation Department reopened much of the Boise Greenbelt Wednesday following record-setting flood waters this spring, which forced the popular pathway's closure in April.

Following an inspection of the 25-mile Greenbelt, city engineers said most of it could reopen, but five sections would remain closed for the foreseeable future because more repairs were necessary.

Sections that remain closed are:
  • Part of the Greenbelt through Marianne Williams Park
  • The entire Bethine Church River Trail near the Cottonwood Apartments
  • The south side of the Greenbelt underneath the Parkcenter Boulevard Bridge to Loggers Creek
  • The north side of the Greenbelt near Veteran's Memorial Park
  • A Section of the north side of the Greenbelt that connects Esther Simplot Park to Veteran's Memorial Pond
Meanwhile, the Boise Fire Department cautions citizens that the Boise River remains dangerous due to continuing fast and cold conditions.
