We found this by accident when we were riding our bikes on the Green Belt. It is a great outdoor tribute to human rights. There is an amazing statue of Anne Frank standing on a chair, carefully looking out of the window of the house where she was hiding. You can walk on both sides of this display and get a small sense of her frightening situation. There are many quotes about human rights, places to sit and contemplate and rest. There is a lovely water fountain. There are recorded messages you can play to learn more about human rights. Very well done and in a beautiful spot along the Boise River.

This is a nicely laid out monument to Anne Frank located along the river trail. I thought there was a connection between Miss Frank and Boise, and was curious what that would be. As others have pointed out, there apparently isn’t one. Still, spend 30 minutes or so reading the quotes and reflecting on the hardships that she experienced.

My wife and I spent some time here on our recent visit to Boise. The memorial is extremely well-done, we were both moved by what we saw. It definitely made you reflect upon what is really important in this world. Everyone who visits Boise should take a few minutes and visit.

This is a very well done memorial to all the people that have suffered in the world, not only Anne Frank. We spent quite a bit of time reading all of the quotations, and having time to meditate after we walked about the area. Very thought provoking, and well done.

This is a small park that has walls with quotes from Anne Frank’s diary mixed in with a large variety of quotations on the theme of human rights from different well-known people. It is a peaceful spot. There is a small parking lot next to it. Allow at least 30 minutes, longer if you really want to read all the quotes.

This was my second visit to the memorial and what a change from last year! The one section that was closed then was open this time, which included Anne Frank's attic room, an open area of the floor plan, including the staircase, in which she, family and friends, stayed for two years. An added bonus was being guided by a volunteer who presented historical information about Anne. One intriguing bit of info was about the tree that was outside Anne's window: Boise is one of nine places in the United States that received actual seeds of the original oak tree. Although the tree on display was not of that seed (the actual tree is being grown and becoming weather-hearty in a closed facility to be permanently planted at the memorial in the near future), it nonetheless gave me the impression of what Anne looked at from her attic window- th longing to ne a normal teenager and to run and play. The fall colors in the area added to nuance and the feeling of impact Anne's diary words left many of us in the world.
A must-see!

I came across this Park driving on my way to Washington through Idaho.
first of all it's completely free to all visitors.
I was moved by the Audio story telling at each post, You had to go through the park to hear all of them in sequence.( I loved that you had to spin a wheel like a phonograph, to hear the recording, nice touch, really put you in the time frame.)
As you walked through the park there were statues and benches with quotes and even a large concrete book, with words from her diary embossed on it.. It was Peaceful there that cold February day when I visited, I enjoyed this experience very much, it is definitely worth it to stop and listen..

Beautiful site, behind the library in the greenbelt. Right beside a 1911 Post truss bridge that spans the Boise River. In June 2014, it is partially under repair but 75% of the site, and the most memorable parts, are all accessible. Moving quotes etched into the stone walls - perseverance, hope, strength, longing. Look for it.

This memorial is beautifully done. The carefully chosen quotes each deserve time to mull over and thankfully there are well placed benches to allow one to do just that.The sun can be punishingly hot in Boise and there is little shade. I definitely recommend going but don't try it when the sun is high. This beautiful place is a very intentional antidote to Idaho's tarnished reputation because of resident militia groups.

What a wonderful place to visit. Serene memorial with waterfalls, reflecting pools, lots of info about Anne Frank. There are walls with quotes from Anne Frank, Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, Eleanor Roosevelt and others. For my wife, who knew very little about Anne Frank and what she went through, finally dying of starvation in the concentration camp, it was an eye opening, emotional experience. DO NOT MISS when in Boise.
