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

Zoo Boise is nearby, as well as the Idaho Historical Museum, the Rose Garden, and the Boise Art Museum. It is located in the... More

Love that some museums and the zoo are contained in the park, also a lake with crazy swan paddle boats. It should be a great place. There is a lot of construction right now, so some of the park is closed. The largest problem is geese. They have taken the park over, and the city needs to rid them from... More

We have attended several events at this park. It is always clean, easily accessible and maintained. Great place for the whole family. Also has the beautiful river running right along the park.

Beautiful park for a walk or a bike ride. We chose to have a picnic and play some frisbee. There is a lovely zoo with great exhibits. Peddly boats are relaxing. Like doing a lazy river ride without getting wet.

We were in Boise for an event held at the Julia Davis Park. This is a large green oasis along the river in the middle of down town Boise. Across the river is Boise State University. A long biking and walking path follows the river through this park. There is a zoo, rose garden, art museum, paddle boats on a... More
