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

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.

Easy access to parking and to the foothill walking paths. Great place to bring young children to play and walk.

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!
