The Boise Depot is a beautiful historic Spanish-style structure operated by the Boise Parks and Recreation Department as a public ceremonial or meeting space and historic site, and is home to the famous Platt Gardens. Designed by New York architects, the building opened in 1925 to elaborate fanfare in the capital city.
As of July 27, 2021, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated its guidance regarding masks and COVID-19. The CDC now recommends all individuals wear a mask indoors regardless of their vaccination status. Following these revised guidelines, the City of Boise now requires everyone to properly wear facial coverings inside City of Boise facilities (including the Boise Depot Great Hall and Meeting Station), regardless of vaccination status. Please note: guests may remove their masks while eating and drinking. Our security team is on site to monitor the building.
