An Anne Frank memorial in Boise? It was a surprise to us, and a pleasant one. The area is filled with inspirational and thought provoking quotes and pictures on stone slabs. The area was under construction when we visited, and it appeared that there were some audio programs but they were not accessible during our visit. There are also quotes... More

It is under some construction in mid September, but it is a nice spot to find on your walk along the greenbelt. Do stop and enjoy the serenity of the memorial. I am sure it will be even better when the construction is completed. The things you find along the greenbelt are surprises. I had no idea it was there,... More

While walking the greenbelt we came upon this memorial quite by accident. Boise has a lot of art lurking in unexpected places, and this artistic memorial was a total surprise, and a pleasant one. The hand wound audio speakers tell the Anne Frank story while there are pictures and quotations on the massive stone walls (Stonehenge light?) around the area.... More

I came across this Park driving on my way to Washington through Idaho. first of all it's completely free to all visitors. I was moved by the Audio story telling at each post, You had to go through the park to hear all of them in sequence.( I loved that you had to spin a wheel like a phonograph, to... More

A lot of nice fountains. I enjoy walking the dog here. After you get done enjoying the fountains you can walk along the Greenbelt or visit the library.

Beautiful site, behind the library in the greenbelt. Right beside a 1911 Post truss bridge that spans the Boise River. In June 2014, it is partially under repair but 75% of the site, and the most memorable parts, are all accessible. Moving quotes etched into the stone walls - perseverance, hope, strength, longing. Look for it.

This memorial is beautifully done. The carefully chosen quotes each deserve time to mull over and thankfully there are well placed benches to allow one to do just that.The sun can be punishingly hot in Boise and there is little shade. I definitely recommend going but don't try it when the sun is high. This beautiful place is a very... More

Despite being partially roped off for repair, it was a very interesting memorial. I especially enjoyed the quotes on the wall from all time periods.
