Boise Parks and Recreation enhances the quality of life in Boise by providing safe, healthy and accessible recreational opportunities for children and adults. The department is responsible for maintaining more than 90 parks throughout the City of Boise, more than 200 miles of trails throughout the Ridge to Rivers System, 25 miles of Boise River Greenbelt pathway and hundreds of acres of open space. In addition, we manage a variety of recreational facilities including Zoo Boise, Warm Springs Golf Course, Quail Hollow Golf Course, six outdoor pools, Idaho IceWorld, Fort Boise Community Center and more.

We are proud to offer affordable classes and camps throughout the year. From art to drama, dance classes, fitness and martial arts programs, mountain biking instruction, nature tours, environmental education, special events and other programs, there’s something for everyone. Boise Parks and Recreation serves hundreds of low-income kids at school-based community centers across Boise. Our mobile recreation van also travels to parks, schools and neighborhoods throughout the city to serve the community and provide safe, healthy outlets for youth. We are also proud to offer a growing Adaptive Recreation program serving children and adults with disabilities.
