Linear Park and Pathway at West Goddard Road

Boise Parks and Recreation is in the planning phase of 3-acre linear park and pathway along West Goddard Road. The property, which is adjacent to Settlers Canal and across the street from Capital High School, was donated to the City of Boise by the Settlers Irrigation District in July 2022.

The linear park and pathway master plan design was developed based on stakeholder initiative and community feedback. The master plan was approved by the Boise Parks and Recreation Commission on January 19, 2023. The master plan has also been approved by partner agencies. Design elements include a shaded transit stop with a public art element, pollinator plantings with native shrubs and perennials, 10-foot-wide accessible multi-use pathway, shade pavilion with seating, and raised seat walls.

Next Steps

The project is currently out for bid, and the bid is scheduled to open on November 22, 2023.

Boise Parks and Recreation staff is seeking additional avenues for funding to begin planning for future construction. The goal is to have a project application submitted and in front of the Open Space and Clean Water Advisory Committee for consideration at their December 6, 2023 meeting.

A timeline for development of the site has not been determined.
