The Boise Parks and Recreation Department owns and operates six outdoor pools located across the City of Boise. A public outreach and engagement process is underway to gather community input on the future of Lowell and South Pools, which are the oldest facilities within the city’s public pool system. Information and feedback gathered throughout the outreach process will be compiled and presented to city leaders as decisions are made about the future of both pools.
COMMUNITY SURVEY RESULTS
Community surveys for both Lowell and South Pools launched in February and closed on March 28, 2022. The goal of the two surveys was to gather input on city values, potential scenarios for each pool site, any additional comments and resident stories related to the two aging recreation facilities. The city received a wide range of responses to both surveys, with 2,167 individual responses to the South Pool survey and 1,869 individual responses to the Lowell Pool survey.

Survey responses and individual comments are included in the following documents. Responses are anonymous.
In addition to the background information provided on this project page, Boise Parks and Recreation has answered a variety of frequently asked questions about the two pools, the planning process, budgeting and more.
