    Welcome to the Boise River Park

    Where is the Park?

    The Boise River Park is located between the Fairview Avenue and Veteran's Memorial Parkway Bridges on the Boise River off of North Whitewater Park Boulevard and next to Quinn's Pond. A Boise Greenbelt spur runs between Whitewater Park Boulevard and the Boise River.  

    Where can I park for the Boise River Park?

    Parking is now available in the new Esther Simplot Park and the Greenbelt spur between Whitewater Park Boulevard and the Boise River is open.  The temporary lot at the former Bob Rice Ford property IN Main Street will close Fall 2016. Additional parking is available in Esther Simplot Park adjacent to Idaho River Sports.

    What is the Park? The Boise River Park is a public park, owned and operated by the City of Boise. It is in the process of being completed.

    Phase I was completed in 2012 and included the Harry W. Morrison Dam with three wave shapers and a cool viewing area off of the Boise Greenbelt.

    Phase II, will include features in the river and along the shoreline for 1/2 mile downstream from the dam, will be completed through a generous donation from the Albertson Family Foundation. For more information on the donation - click here.

    The Friends of the Park are continuing fundraising for other projects on the Boise River. For more information, contact us.
