I love the annual Art in the Park during September of each year. Beautiful big shade trees covering the vendors on lawn. Even on a hot day, and most are that time of year, it's comfortable for moving from one vendor to another, and sitting for some lunch.

Beautiful Park for walking, biking, picnicking, playing with children, or just strolling around in the Rose Garden. The Idaho Historic Museum, the Art Museum, & the Boise Zoo are all right here in walking distance of each other. Can get very crowded in summer & when there are public events taking place. Check the online calendar at the Boise Chamber... More

Beautiful park, downtown, with tons of local cultural attractions. The Historical Museum is currently undergoing renovations, but everything else is open and great. Close to BSU and the heart of the Greenbelt. You can spend a whole day here and not see everything.

What a beautiful park that has a little bit of everything. There is a nice pond that rents out paddle boats. There are tennis courts, bocce and horseshoe courts. Boiling and walking paths all over with the river going through.

Boise has several downtown parks that really open up the city and offer pedestrian friendly sites to walk, picnic or enjoy the river. This park has easy access to the university and several apartments, condos and travelers.

When in Boise recently went to the park to get away for a little while and the walking paths are very nice with plenty of shade and places to sit. Quiet and the geese were very friendly. Will definitely be back when in town again.

This is one of our favorite spots to have family get togethers. The park is spacious with mature trees and plenty of picnic tables. The Greenbelt runs through it, with the Boise River running alongside. It is in the center of everything fun! Zoo Boise, The Discovery Center, the paddleboats and more! Worth a visit!
