Celebrate the Boise River Greenbelt
The Boise River Greenbelt is 50 years old this year. To mark this historic anniversary, the City of Boise is planning a three-day community-wide celebration September 19-21, 2019.
As part of the celebration, the Parks and Recreation Department and Boise City Department of Arts & History are planning a series of events and a community-driven storytelling campaign to honor this beloved pathway that connects our community. There will be opportunities for everyone who likes to walk, bike and enjoy the Boise River Greenbelt to attend historical talks, take guided Greenbelt tours, attend a concert in the park and more.
Some event times and registration information is yet to be determined. Check back regularly for updates.
