Julia Davis Park Rotary Grand Plaza

The plaza was envisioned as part of the design competition in 2006 as the park was preparing for its century celebration. Located along the mall road between the rose garden and Zoo Boise, the new plaza creates a central gathering place in the park. It features a 4’ diameter bronze medallion that includes a seed and roots signifying the beginning of the City of Boise and the park. Other design elements harken back to the apple orchards that once covered the land that now serves as Julia Davis Park.

Diane Davis Myklegard, great granddaughter of Tom and Julia Davis, lead the Second Century Coalition that has raised funds since 2007 for these park improvements. Rotary Clubs in the greater Boise metro area joined in and raised $150,000 towards the construction of the plaza.
