  • Amazing, sprawling park surrounding the amazing Zoo Boise. My family and I have enjoyed coming here for years. Keep it clean and fun! Oh, and it is great for Pokemon GO :)
  • This is my favorite park in the Treasure Valley. Easy to get to from the connector and close to the Zoo, Discovery Zone, Library, and BSU campus. We usually picnic near the tennis courts, but there are many great spaces and the greenbelt is fantastic.
  • A fantastic park with good walking paths, lots of shade, and playground equipment for the little kids. Bring oats, cut grapes, cooked rice, or peas to feed the geese. No bread! Lots of Ingress portals if that's your game instead of Pokemon.
  • Probably one of the best parks in the city. Lots of places to walk but fairly weak in the play area department. More of a teenager/adult place than one for young children.
  • Fantastic park. Plenty of poke stops if you play pokemon Go. Plus you can drive or walk slowly in a circle and hatch eggs. The zoo is fantastic as well. Open until midnight. However do not park here overnight you will be towed.
