The eight-acre park features a pollinator garden and will have interpretive signage about our Monarchs and Milkweeds program. It also features a pond, paths and fenced in dog area.
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.
The fenced dog park is available for use every day from sunrise to sunset and the ground material is bark. A mutt mitt dispenser and trash cans are provided for picking up after your pet.
The Boise River is an incredible destination for fishing and there are a variety of access points along the Greenbelt. Wondering where else to fish in Boise ponds? The Idaho Department of Fish & Game stocks several ponds in Boise parks. For the stocking schedule, visit the Idaho Fish & Game stocking information website.
Open Play Areas
Open play areas are cut grass spaces that provide opportunities for healthy recreational activities for people of all ages.
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.
Smoking and vaping are prohibited in all City of Boise parks, including within 20 feet of the Boise River Greenbelt, except in designated areas within Ann Morrison and Julia Davis Parks and at city-owned golf courses.
Unauthorized vehicles will be towed at owner's risk and expense. You can contact Boise Valley Towing by calling (208) 389-9707.

Mariposa Park History
Located in West Boise at the intersection of Mitchell and Irving streets, the property was purchased by the City of Boise in 2004 from the Sterling family.
Thank you to Whitney Elementary student Riley Fuller for inspiring the park name and theme: butterflies! Mariposa means butterfly in Spanish.
Additional funding will be available in 2026 for the construction of additional amenities.
