This weekend many bars and movie theaters will reopen with physical distancing protocols in place. If fancy cocktails and movie dates aren’t your thing right now, there are some other activites slates to return shortly.


Boise city pools remain closed for now, but Roaring Springs Water Park in Meridian plans to turn on the jets Saturday, May 30 at 11 a.m. 

Float season on the Boise River would typically kick off in a couple weeks, but the capital city is still trying to figure out how to do it safely, including changes to the shuttle system and raft rentals.

And there’s good news for campers — Idaho’s 30 state parks will allow camping starting Saturday, May 30. 

Idaho Power will also open some of its 60 recreational sites along the Snake River, including Twin Falls Park and boat ramp and the company’s park at Thousand Springs in the Hagerman Valley. 

For an indoor alternative, the Boise Art Museum is planning to open to the general public on June 5.
