Together Treasure Valley Dog Island is located in the southwest corner of Ann Morrison Park and will be a year-round destination for dogs and their owners.
The site includes a 5.4-acre active dog area, a fenced “shy dog” area and opportunities for dogs to swim and play in the surrounding pond. Two picnic shelters have been installed along with nine Together Treasure Valley park benches offering ample seating throughout the park. Water quality enhancement work was completed this spring. The adjacent pond was dredged and cleaned in anticipation of the new dog park opening.
“We are proud to offer an opportunity for dogs to run, play and swim so close to downtown Boise,” said Boise Parks and Recreation Director Doug Holloway. “This is a unique addition to one of our Ribbon of Jewels parks that we anticipate will be very popular with residents.”
The $450,000 project was funded in part through donations from the group Together Treasure Valley and the Harry W. Morrison Foundation.
Seasonal Off-Leash at Ann Morrison Park
The opening of Together Treasure Valley Dog Island will not change Ann Morrison Park’s seasonal dog off-leash schedule. The park will continue to be open to off-leash pets November 1 through the end of February.
