    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 N. Whitewater Park Boulevard. 

    Where CAN I park for the Park?
    Crews began work late this last winter on the reconstruction of the Farmers Union Ditch Company intake structure and site prep work for Esther Simplot Park, requiring the Greenbelt be closed from Veteran’s Memorial Park to the 36th Street pedestrian bridge. 

    The dirt parking lots serving Quinn’s Pond and the Boise River Park from Whitewater Park Boulevard also will be closed during construction. A temporary lot with 32 spaces has opened at the former Bob Rice Ford property along the Greenbelt at Main Street. Click here for a site map.

    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, which includes the Harry W. Morrison Dam with wave shaper and viewing area off of the Boise Greenbelt, was opened in 2012. Phase II, which 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.

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