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.  The city then took over maintaining the park. 

Upcoming Events

For the health and safety of our residents and staff, the City of Boise has canceled all city-sponsored public programming and public outreach until further notice. This includes:
  • Parks and Recreation activities, classes, events and leagues
  • All Library and Arts & History programs and events

The City of Boise issued a Public Health Emergency Order on March 19, 2020 suspending most Boise City board and commission meetings.
