“We appreciate people taking the time to consider their transportation and parking plans before heading out,” said Lieutenant Mike Ruffalo. “Floating the river can be a great family activity and we ask people do their best to be dropped off or carpool, and respect the people living in the neighborhoods nearby.”

The Boise Parks and Recreation Department is urging river users to clean up after themselves when exiting the Boise River. Maintenance teams are working hard to empty the trash cans at the take out and along the float route on a regular basis, but due to high use, trash cans are filling up quickly. We are asking people to do their part and make sure trash ends up in a trash can or is carried out with you.
