Beautiful place!

What a beautiful place! Went to the Discovery Center and then Zoo Boise. Saw the rose garden but didn't go to it as it was triple digits the day we were there.

Beautiful park near the river (obstructed views). Rose garden is modest, but well done. The Boise Art Museum is a gem. The history museum was closed for renovations. We did not go to the zoo.

I was in awe over all the variety of roses in the rose garden. We walked barefoot among the roses enjoying the plush grass - a novelty in heat stricken NC!

A breath taking show of roses of all varieties and splendor. Though the park was larger that than and had other interesting features, we centered on the rose garden. There were some old varieties that I have not seen in a while, along with newer specimens. Do spend the time with your camera and take the time to smell the... More

This park has EVERYTHING a park could have. Whether it is a quiet afternoon to sit along the river and read or a family bbq, this park is perfect. You are in the heart of the city without the sound of heavy traffic or crowds of people. You can bike along the river parallel to a gorgeous university campus or... More

This is a really nice park bordering the Boise river and BSU. A really nice place to take the family on a sunny day, especially in the fall when the trees are turning. But be careful. Don't go by yourself, especially after dark. There have been a series of rapes and attacks on the greenbelt there over the years that... More

Good park for jogging/running, dog walking, especially if the weather is nice! You have to be careful tho when you go into the grass area though, me and my husband went there to play with our dogs and there was dog poop everywhere. Apparently some people don't clean after their pets..

Boise's first park, donated by Tom Davis after his wife Julia died, is still the leader. Open spaces, mature trees, a wonderful zoo and a beautiful rose garden grace this riverside park. A string of other lovely parks dedicated to women have joined it along the river, but fun for children at the zoo or families visiting the Idaho State... More

Every time I'm in Boise I stop at this park to watch the ducks. The pond has a huge variety, especially November -February. Mallards, Mergansers, Goldeneyes, Widgeons. There is a disk golf course that runs through the park as well. It's right across the road from Whole Foods. I suggest grabbing a sandwich and heading over to Julia Davis to... More
