Here is What the Pole Line/Eastland Trailhead Park Will Look Like in Twin Falls
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX)-Twin Falls food producer Chobani revealed what a new park would look like in the northeast part of the city at a city council meeting Monday night. Chobani, known for its Greek yogurt products, announced in December it donated $250,000 to build a multipurpose park at one of the trailheads to the Canyon Rim trail that will be called Pole Line/Eastland Trailhead Park. The Twin Falls Parks and Recreation Department has been working on developing the location as a park since early 2021.

Construction on the park is expected to start later this year. The Parks and Recreation Department asked the city council to approve $563,734 for the project on Monday night.
