Reminder: NW Boise Canal is Private Property

Boise Police want to remind those who recreate in the Pierce Park neighborhood that the canal road that runs between Castle Road and North Pierce Park Lane is privately owned by a ditch company and neighbors who live along the road. Those neighbors are complaining that pedestrain and cycling traffic is increasing along the ditch bank along with noise, trash, dog poop and other problems.      NW Canal 1 101013

The area is posted with No Tresspassing signs. Officers want to remind people that if they walk or bike on the canal road and property owners are willing to sign a complaint, officers will have to take a report and send it through the court system meaning possible fines for tresspassers.
