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.

Get to the hill top and you get a decent view of Boise. Quite a nice place for children. Nothing to eat but still OK.
