Warm Springs Park is home to a wetlands that was developed in 2000 by Boise Parks and Recreation, Ada Soil & Water Conservation District (ASCD) and other partners. The site has become overgrown with vegetation. In February 2013, the department began efforts to restore the site to its intended use as a wetlands demonstration site and educational resource.

The first step was to remove excessive growth of woody plants. Next, crews will burn the area before removing remaining non-woody vegetation, stumps and detritus in the water.
The Department continues to work in partnership with the ASCD to provide an educational destination as well as an enhanced and diversified habitat for the animals and plants in both wetland and upland environments. We'll post updates and photographs periodically, so check back often to see what's new at this wonderful little park.
