The Center on the Grove is a fun place to hang, and lots of activities go on here. People watching, concerts, food, and a fun water pad for kids. The area is changing a lot down there so many new things to see.

Very pleasant location to escape meetings at Boise Center ... between Boise Center, Boise State and all of the offices in the area, it's a great place to people watch and catch a little sun.
