One of Boise's beloved parks that provides access to the Boise River Greenbelt

A wonderful large park and playground under gorgeous tall trees and bring the kiddos bikes and scooters. 

This park provides access to the Boise River Greenbelt. The Greenbelt is one of Boise's most beloved parks. The tree-lined pathway follows the river through the heart of the city and provides scenic views and wildlife habitat with tons of space to enjoy picnics, family outside games or quiet space to read books on the grass. This is a park that has tons of events and activities planned all year round and a very well-known parent workout group called Stroller Strides meets here for mommy and baby workouts. A Rose Garden is located in Julia Davis Park that you can walk through all year round but our favorite time to visit would be Spring to Fall. 

If you visit the Discovery Center, walk up the stairs to the left of the center over to Julia Davis Park Playground. We love to eat our snacks over at the park and have the kids chase the squirrels and enjoy swinging on the swings.

If you are feeling up for a little walk after the park and to see something pretty neat, I will fill you in on a little secret and it will show you why Boise is such an incredible city. Start walking towards the Greenbelt which is the path along the Boise River and you will come behind the Boise Zoo. There are about 3 or 4 giraffes that hang their cute little - well tall heads  - over the fence for my version of a backstage pass. And it's free. Great way to end your day with some giraffes. The kids will love it.

Molly Raymond was born and raised in sunny San Diego, Ca but decided to uproot her family and move to Boise, Idaho in 2018. Idaho has been such a great experience for her and her husband Jason and their two young children since they love the outdoors and nature. She has been working for GoGo SqueeZ as the Community Marketing Manager for over 3 years while staying home to take care of her kiddos. Some of their favorite things to do in Idaho are hiking, camping, boating and most of all find hidden Hot Springs around Idaho. One of Molly’s passions is to teach her children to clean up litter so they can learn to protect and take care of the environment.
