An Idaho charity is giving a million-dollar makeover to a skate park in downtown Boise.
The J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation is donating $1.25 million for the renovation of the Rhodes Skateboard Park. The park is underneath the connector that joins I-84 to downtown Boise.
Over the summer, a group of homeless people began camping out across the street from the concrete skating area. Boise has tried repeatedly to move the campers out of the makeshift camp.
City spokesman Mike Journee says the camp had no bearing on the gift from the foundation.
