Great place for photography

This place seems to always have interesting birds to photograph. Around the river there are always birds, but it seems really beautiful ones like this park.

Great family walking trails with natural habitat. Ducks, birds, geese and deer, too. Well paved trails, go at you own pace or rest in a covered area, or on bench.

The park is always well inhabited by wildlife. It is a great place for walking dogs (on leash). The perfect way to spend an afternoon.

Lovely park for walking at any time of year. Urban setting with a plethora of wildlife every day. Geese, rabbbits, deer, and lots of birds, fish, turtles and ducks. And no BICYCLES!

Beautiful place to take pics, beautiful pond areas, great paths, and just a really nice place to be! Its quiet although near downtown Boise, its a great place to go with someone if you need to walk and talk.

Went to the Park, it is a real popular attraction in Boise, and had a great time with my family. Lots of entertainment in the park, a real nice walking path and all kinds of things to do! We sat and watched a few bands play, ate lunch and watched kids fly kites.
