Boise is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. Whether you love hitting the slopes at Bogus Basin, or enjoy a leisurely walk down the Greenbelt, there are numerous activities to choose from.
North East Boise is no exception. This neighborhood, which encompasses Barber Valley and Harris Ranch, is the starting point for so many of Boise’s favorite spots.
Floating the Boise River is a rite of passage when you move to the City of Trees. Barber Park is the starting point to float the river. Here you can rent a raft, tube or kayak to conquer the river. Park your car at Barber Park and then take advantage of the free shuttle at Ann Morrison Park that will take you back to your car after floating. Barber Park also has several picnic pads, a basketball court, and a playground.
Marianne Williams Park
Marianne Williams Park is a 72-acre oasis that offers fishing, bird watching, and a reservable gazebo. After you’ve enjoyed all that Marianne Williams Park has to offer, you can easily hop onto the Greenbelt. The 25-mile long pathway is the heart of the city, allowing residents to walk and bike along the Boise River under a canopy of trees. Stop by Bown Crossing while you are in the area to savor some delicious local bites from the Tavern, Boise Fry Co., Bier Thirty or Locavore.
Lucky Peak State Park
If you’re looking for an outdoorsman paradise, look no further than Lucky Peak State Park. Swimming, fishing, boating, water-skiing, hiking, or just enjoying a relaxing picnic along the shore—there’s something for everyone at Lucky Peak. When searching for a fun spot for the whole family, head to Sandy Point where you’ll find a swimming area with fountain, water toys, and volleyball courts.
