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

I enjoyed walking through the rose garden and love that it connects the art museum, zoo, and history museum. So pretty and peaceful!

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.

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

This is a quiet little city park along the river bank, directly opposite the campus of Boise State University. There is free two hour parking along the drive, so I got out of my car and walked to a bridge that crosses the river to take some pictures. There were people wading in the river, a few fishing, and several... More

My husband and I love to go to Julia Davis Park when we have time to kill in Boise. Walking through the Rose Garden is always fun, and listening to the sound of Animals at the zoo next door. Its a great place to bring a blanket, lay on the grass, and have a picnic.
