A new, 1.5-acre Boise park is one step closer following a groundbreaking ceremony. Primrose Park is located off Gary Lane in Northwest Boise. The park will feature walking paths, a playground with accessible features, an outdoor gym, a shelter, shade trees and a pollinator garden.
“This is an important addition for residents living in the northwest portion of our city,” said Mayor Lauren McLean. “We are committed to making sure every Boisean is within a 10-minute walk to a park and this beautiful outdoor space nestled in a neighborhood will make that happen for close to 600 households. I’m thrilled to be able to add this much anticipated park in our city.”
Primrose Park’s design does not include a parking lot to maximize the usable park space, but ADA van accessible parking is being added on site. In addition, the playground features accessible amenities and bonded rubber surfacing for people who use wheelchairs or mobility devices.
“Primrose Park is a great example of community feedback helping shape a park space that provides a variety of experiences for all ages and abilities,” said Boise Parks and Recreation Director Doug Holloway. “From the playground to the pollinator garden, which will feature the park’s namesake flower, we are showcasing the best of what a neighborhood-focused green space can offer.”
The park perimeter is fenced for construction and equipment staging and site preparation is expected to begin in the coming weeks. The majority of park construction is expected to take place after January 1, 2024.
Primrose Park is projected to open in late 2024. Updates on the park’s completion timeline will be shared as they are available. For more information on Primrose Park, visit the City’s Boise’s website.
