It is a wonderful display of period lifestyle and replicates one of the northwest’s earliest fur trading forts. History Of The Fort Hall Replica.
At Frontier Town you will be astonished as you step into the past wooden board walks, viewing twelve historic replica buildings of the early days of Pocatello.

Love to Play
Brooklyn's Playground is a community-wide volunteer effort to build the first fully-inclusive playground for the Pocatello-Chubbuck area, a place where children of all abilities can come together, interact, and grow through "the gift of play."
11 percent of students in the Pocatello/Chubbuck School District – nearly 3,000 children – have a disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act. Pocatello and Chubbuck now have an all-inclusive playground where children can improve their physical, cognitive and social skills side-by-side with their non-disabled playmates in an inclusive environment.
Brooklyn Fisher, for whom the Brooklyn's Playground effort is named, has spina bifida. Her parents, Jonny and Melissa, are leading the effort to build an inclusive playground for our community's children.
Kizuna Garden is a beautiful Japanese Garden developed by the Pocatello Arts Council and located at the Pocatello Regional Airport. Kizuna Garden is nestled into the landscaping directly in front of the terminal. It is located at the airport because the garden links our community to the rest of the world, especially to our sister city Iwamizawa, promoting friendship and harmony. The Japanese word Kizuna represents a bond or link. The garden features over 100 species of plants, unique rocks, lanterns, water formations and more.
