Veteran's park is on the Boise River, it is easy to get to from all over. There are picnic tables, lots of shade trees and a hop skip and jump to the Boise Green Belt and the Boise River. There are some things to look at, Veteran's Memorial and Wake Island Memorial. There are bathrooms as well.

Lots of grass and open space. Not in the best part of town so you do see a lot of undesirables just hanging around.
