The best way to get to know a city and the lay of the land is to put on your comfy shoes and get walking. Camel Back Park and the summit trails behind it are an explorers dream come true. We started our hike at 7:30 am. There is a rope to help you up the "camel's hump" as the... More

All of the fun components for children were there: climbing and swinging equipment, a big hill, and plenty of room to run around. A great neighborhood place for parents to socialize while the kids let off steam. Within walking distance of Hyde Park and ice cream afterwards!

Set at the base of the foothills it is fun to watch all the activity going on. There is a terrific play set for the little ones, big hills to climb, mountain bikers, walkers and dogs to watch. Lots of green grass, not tons of shade, and it is quite hot at time, but then it is Boise! Great place... More

Many joggers and bikers meet here each weekend morning. The trails start there. It would be nice to have another set of restrooms on the far east end, other side of the tennis courts. Tennis, Volleyball and kids tot lot are all active. Small area in SW corner has BBQ and tables. Would be nice to see another BBQ and... More

My family and I went here to go hiking but spent a majority of the time at the playground. My daughter didn't want to leave! She had so much fun!

We LOVE this park! Huge playground for kids with lots of different types of equipment, massive grassy areas for football, frisbees, and kite-flying, trees around the edges of the park for shade, tightrope walking, etc., tennis courts, picnic tables, and access to miles of hiking trails for all types of abilities and ages. And, the Hyde Park Street Fair in... More

This isn't a gorgeous park (it isn't full of flowers and with lots of trees) - but the hike up is strenuous and fun if you are near downtown. And if you get to the top the view is great of Boise and the hills.

We all love running up the big sand hill. It is hard to climb, and gives the kids something to do for an hour or more sometimes. Its also good to run up if you're looking to exercise!

I hadn't put this park high on our "to do" list when we visited Boise. We spontaneously went to check it out one early evening (in Feb) as the sun was setting. Bummer for my 5 year old son who wanted lots of time at the playground (it was dark by the time we walked back down off the "camel's... More

You will want to see if you have what it takes to climb the first hill and then run down the second hill. The park is popuar and includes a play ground, sand pit for volley ball, and open space to toss a frisby or football. The park is small with limited number of areas to eat, so bring a... More
