Ponderay Bike Rodeo, McNearney Park


Did you know that Ponderay’s McNearney Park has a bicycle pump track and skills loop?


Join Ponderay City Officials, Staff and first responders for food and fun, Saturday, May 22, 2021 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at McNearney Park, as we focus on bicycle safety at Ponderay’s first McNearney Park Bicycle Rodeo.


The bike rodeo will be held at McNearney Park, located on Dustarr Lane, behind the Better Together Animal Alliance.  This event is open to children of all ages and will include bicycle safety checks, opportunities to learn about bicycle safety and then the opportunity to practice those skills. Pre-registration is not required, just visit the registration tent upon arrival.  Children must be accompanied by an adult to register.


We invite you to bring your family out to the park and join in the festivities! Kids should bring their bike or scooter and helmet, if you have one.  However, don’t worry if your child has outgrown their helmet. Thanks to our generous event sponsors Ting Crazy Fast Fiber Internet and Ponderay Rotary, we are able to offer free bicycle helmets (while supplies last) and our first responders will be available to help you to safely fit the helmets on site.


Once you have honed your safety skills and made sure your equipment is in tip top shape compete for prizes from 2p.m. to 3 p.m. in activities including a freestyle competition on the pump track and a toddler bike/trike drag race.


This free event will also include a community BBQ hosted by the City of Ponderay. Join us for lunch and take a few moments to learn about what’s new with Ponderay’s Field of Dreams and The Front Yard Project.


For questions or additional information relating to this event, contact Erik or KayLeigh at Ponderay City Hall 208-265-5468.

Harbison Field Improvements Underway

Comments Off on Harbison Field Improvements Underway

Harbison Field is receiving some amazing upgrades this year just in time for Ponderay Neighbor Day!


Thanks to Ponderay City Council and a generous donation from Avista, work is currently underway to bring power to Harbison Field.  Burnett Electric has been working hard and has installed power infrastructure to the stage and vendor booth areas allowing us to power Ponderay Neighbor Day without the need for noisy generators for years to come!


Additionally, Pat Oxford and Zac Logan of Construction Northwest have been hard at work constructing a permanent stage at Harbison Field which will be christened when the Miah Kohal Band takes the stage Saturday, September 19th for Ponderay Neighbor Day 2020!


Harbison Field has become the City’s go to venue for public events in the community! These improvements will be enjoyed by all and would not have been possible without the generous donations of time, labor and materials from the community!


THANK YOU to all of our donors who made this possible!
