About Optimist Youth Sports Complex
In agreement with the Boise Noon Optimists, the sports complex is primarily football fields and soccer fields. This agreement came about through a contract made between the City of Boise and the Boise Noon Optimists in 2002. The Boise Noon Optimists led by Jerron Moore agreed to raise funds for the development and perform the construction of the park. After completion of the park, the City of Boise took over maintaining the park.
