This is a peaceful spot in a busy part of town. I especially love the outline of the Frank annex-- it really helps people understand the tight confines of their hiding place.

We came to the Memorial not knowing what to expect and were really moved by the quiet beauty of the park. I thought the hand crank tape recordings added a nice touch. It explained the purpose and history of the park. A must see if you are a visitor or native of the area

It is a pleasant place to pause and reflect on those who have advanced human rights issues. It is a quiet place near the library where one can relax.

This is a beautifully executed memorial, in an otherwise worthless piece of land sandwiched amongst other established.structures. The layout is creative and tasteful, and it's never crowded -- one of the "best kept secrets" in Boise.

A very tasteful memorial to Anne Frank which rouses our sense of responsibility toward human rights.

Lots of familiar and famous quotes etched on stone in an open area. Some great reminders how we should all live our life's. Probably not for the youngsters. I really enjoyed stopping by. I was there for less than an hour and wanted to stay longer. You can get a good appreciation of this site in a shorter visit.

Not much there, just a plaque and small garden. There was also a waterfall (tiny). I just happened on it while walking downtown.

Great location to many other Boise attraction. Located right behind the Boise Library and a short walk from the Boise zoo. A great place to spend a few minutes reading all the quotes that line the walls, that were written by human rights leaders.

This is definitely a place you could enjoy a picnic lunch or just sit and read a good book while reflecting on all the great quotes that line the walls. Love that it is close to downtown and also to the greenbelt.
