Summer Activities

Summer is an incredible time to explore Boise’s parks, trails and recreational facilities. From our popular swimming lessons to Playcamps, art classes and more, we’ve got an affordable activity for everyone in the family. Check out the latest environmental education classes for kids or sign up for a Lifetime & Leisure tour. Our Adaptive Recreation offerings include outings, trips and classes for a a variety of ages and abilities, too!

Please note, starting in Summer 2024 the Boise Parks and Recreation Activity Guide is going fully digital! We are proud to serve the Boise community and appreciate your support as we make changes to better support our customers and environmentally friendly business practices.
