Horizon Hills Reserve

The City of Boise utilized levy funds to preserve 29 acres located in the northwest Boise Foothills. The acreage, located off Pierce Park Road, is adjacent to an area already utilized by the community for public access.

The land is located between Polecat Reserve and Seaman’s Gulch. Ken Pursley purchased the property from Lillian Barnes in 1991 and always envisioned the site containing open space and trails, in addition to homesite development.

The total purchase price for the property is approximately $605,000 plus due diligence costs. This price is significantly lower than the overall value of the land because the Pursley family trust has agreed to donate a portion of the value of the property should Boise City Council members approve the acquisition.

If purchased, the city would not develop trails or trailhead facilities right away, and existing informal and landowner allowed access would not be impacted by the purchase.
