Jensen’s Grove Pond back to normal

BLACKFOOT, Idaho (KIFI) - A popular destination in Blackfoot has a familiar look.

The 55-acre pond in Jensen's Grove Park has filled back up to normal levels after having a shortage for most of the summer.

For Janet Turner and her family, they were excited to make their return after previously coming up this summer to a half-empty pond. 

"We walked down quite a ways, and were really disappointed on how much the water was down," Turner said. "We could understand with the drought and all. But, it was really exciting when I got them back, and we were able to come and enjoy the water today."

Turner's son Robby Bernal says he was happy to see the community come out and enjoy themselves at Jensen's Grove. 

"It’s just been great to see the activity going back on through here, because I see it every day," Bernal said. "It’s just nice to see."

Perhaps no one was more excited to get back in the water than Edward Bishop.

"I've been waiting all summer for me to finally hit the inner tube out here," Bishop said.

It's a place that edward loves to spend most of his summer days. 

"It’s really just awesome to see what people do out here," Bishop said. "I come every day just to watch people and to come out and just enjoy myself. It's kind of like a vacation for me."

With the pond now full, Jensen's grove is once again a popular destination for the entire family.
