About the Platt Gardens
Located on a hillside overlooking Capitol Boulevard and downtown Boise, Platt Gardens is a scenic location for wedding and graduation photos.
Boise City acquired the Platt Gardens and the Depot through a donation from Union Pacific Railroad in January 1982.
Platt Gardens was designed by Spanish landscape architect Ricardo Espino. Built by Union Pacific in 1927, the Platt Gardens feature a winding walk, benches, ponds, a monument of volcanic rock and a welcoming display of greenery. The garden was named for Howard V. Platt, who at the time, was general manager of the original Oregon Short Line Railroad.
