  • Beautiful park to get out and enjoy the weather and some sports. We went there after enjoying the zoo to just chill and cool down in the shade for a bit. Our world be a great place for a picnic and a game of frisbee.
  • Boise great iconic Park. So close to downtown and BSU. So much to do. Relaxing, walking, tennis, horseshoes, boccee courts, pedal boats on the pond. Take a walk through the Rose Garden.
  • Absolutely beautiful area. Very calm place to walk, ride, or just hang out. Don't forget the paddle boats!
  • Great atmosphere. Tons of parking. Tables. Places to rent out. Fun weekend activities.
  • Julia Davis is a part of a sprawling park system that is the crown jewel of Boise. Home to towering trees, the Boise Art Museum, the Rose Garden, Zoo Boise and much more, it is edged by the greenbelt and the Boise River. It is also the gateway to the North side of the Boise State Campus. A must visit destination in your visit to Boise or your retreat from the city.
