Conservation Station

Conservation stations are a discovery based environmental education program designed to educate the community about a variety of conservation related topics. Park visitors can come across a station and learn about our natural environment while recreating in Boise parks.

Ann Morrison Park is home to several Conservation Stations including a bat roosting box, an insect hotel, cavity nesting boxes and protected showy milkweed habitat.


The field is located in the south/west corner of the Ann Morrison soccer fields. Their concrete 'pitch' was installed between soccer fields 1 and 2.

Dog Off-Leash

Dogs and their owners should be sure to follow the city's leash ordinance going to and coming from the dog park, and follow the dog off-leash rules and regulations while visiting the park. Learn more.

Together Treasure Valley Dog Island is located in the southwest corner of Ann Morrison Park and is a year-round destination for dogs and their owners.

The site includes a 5.4-acre active dog area, a fenced “shy dog” area and opportunities for dogs to swim and play in the surrounding pond. Two picnic shelters have been installed along with nine Together Treasure Valley park benches offering ample seating throughout the park.

The $450,000 project was funded in part through donations from the group Together Treasure Valley and the Harry W. Morrison Foundation.

Seasonal Off-Leash at Ann Morrison Park

The opening of Together Treasure Valley Dog Island will not change Ann Morrison Park’s seasonal dog off-leash schedule. The park will continue to be open to off-leash pets November 1 through the end of February.

Disc Golf

If you are an avid disc golfer, you have probably noticed a few changes taking place with the Ann Morrison Disc Golf Course. Thanks to the efforts of the Gem State Disc Golf Club, the course is receiving a sorely needed facelift. Holes have been relocated and others added to address changes to the park, signs are being updated, and other amenities are being considered. The new layout features 18 holes of challenging play, and starts off the American Blvd. entrance to the park.

Greenbelt Access

This park provides access to the Boise River Greenbelt. The Greenbelt is one of Boise's most beloved parks. The tree-lined pathway follows the river through the heart of the city and provides scenic views and wildlife habitat.


Horseshoes pits are available on a first come, first served basis. Players must provide their own equipment.

Outdoor Gym

Use of the equipment, which is accessible year round, is free to the public. Are you a gym newbie? Don't worry. Each piece of equipment has posted instructions.

Learn more about each piece of equipment and sample workouts on's website.


Playground is for ages 2-12.

Playground surface is bonded rubber.

There are swingsets available.

Pollinator Garden

Pollinator gardens create an oasis of nature in our parks.  Pollinators are animals—bees, butterflies, beetles, hummingbirds, etc.—that transfer pollen from flower to flower, enabling plants to make seeds.  Without pollinators many of the foods humans and wildlife depend on, including nuts, fruits and berries would not be available.  Pollinator gardens provide critical habitat for these essential creatures and help maintain clean water and air, stabilize the soil, make the ecosystem more resilient and support other native wildlife.


Ann Morrison Park has a shelter that may be reserved for events, picnics and ceremonies. The facilities at this park can only be reserved starting January 1st each year.


Restrooms by the playground are open year-round. Portable restrooms available year-round near Together Treasure Valley Dog Island.

River Take Out and Floater Drop-Off

Floating the Boise River from Barber Park to Ann Morrison Park is a popular summer activity. The take out is located river left just before the bridge. When ending your river float at Ann Morrison Park, please use the trash receptacles located at the takeout area. If trash cans are full, please pack out your trash to keep the park clean. The shuttle pick up and drop off is located across the grass from the take out on the main road through Ann Morrison Park.

The Boise Parks and Recreation team has added an additional floater drop off area in Ann Morrison Park next to the playground. This area is designed to help the flow of traffic for people who park at Ann Morrison Park and need a place to pack up when they finish their float or when they unload passengers to take the shuttle to Barber Park before floating the river.

People who park in Ann Morrison Park can take a shuttle for a small fee to Barber Park to start their float trip. Parking is available on a first come, first served basis at no cost inside the park.
