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.

This is a great way to get away from the downtown area, without really having to get away. It's a nice walk from the North end through old and well-kept neighborhoods. This park offers lots of walking trails and fantastic views of the valley.

This park has something for everyone. Playground, open space, tennis courts, the big hill to climb and access to hiking trails. It is also up the street from Hyde Park where you can find all kinds of good things. Great Place!

Easy to get to, open spaces and a hike everyone could handle. The park is in great shape, and close to all the shops on N 13th.

What a view from the camels back. Our two boys, 2 and 3 had no problem hiking to the top. Ample parking, nice playground. Well kept.

They have a playground for kids, very clean toilettes, tables for picnic and a nice hill for hiking. Lots of trees, close to downtown.
