About Fort Boise Park

Fort Boise Park was acquired in 1950 from the federal government after the Defense Department declared the site as surplus property. The park was originally 40.37 acres but in 1956 several acres were traded to the Idaho Elks organization in exchange for a site of approximately the same size off of State Street.
