The park’s official opening and ribbon-cutting on November 2 was a truly historic event for our city. Covering 55 acres along Whitewater Park Boulevard in downtown’s West End neighborhood, Esther Simplot Park is likely the last large waterfront park to be created in Boise’s central core; it joins Julia Davis, Ann Morrison, and Kathyrn Albertson parks as the principal attractions of one of the greatest urban greenspace programs in the country. Even more remarkable is the journey that brought us to this new park. As longtime Boiseans well know, the area along the Boise River north of Main Street was once largely industrial, home to sawmills, a concrete plant, and an airfield, among other things. The ponds and vacant fields that have occupied this location for the past several decades were not quite the blank canvas they appeared to be; as construction of the park began in 2015, our crews quickly discovered extensive industrial debris buried at the site, including scrap concrete, drums and tanks containing petroleum products, and even an entire automobile. Excavating this material and hauling it to the landfill resulted in more expense and delayed the park’s opening. But the city was committed to do the right thing for the environment and our citizens. The result is a remarkable transformation: a showcase park, right along the Greenbelt, that I predict will quickly become a favorite of residents and visitors alike. Almost half of Esther Simplot Park, 23 acres in all, consists of ponds that are perfect for a wide range of aquatic activities. A stream connects the ponds to nearby Quinn’s Pond, and development of Phase 2 of the adjacent Boise River Park next year will create a link for that popular park’s many surfers and kayakers. Esther Simplot Park also features picnic shelters, grassy open areas, a playground, and restrooms. Beyond its aesthetic benefits, the park also provides a buffer to absorb high water during flood season and to help reduce runoff pollution of the river year-round. As with all of Boise’s greatest amenities, Esther Simplot Park is the product of a strong partnership between the City and other public agencies, businesses, and our citizens. The park has been in the works for more than a decade; a $1 million gift from J.R. and Esther Simplot in 2003 allowed the City to complete the purchase of the property. And the J.R. Simplot Foundation provided funding to develop the park. It was well worth the wait. Some might find it ironic that we’ve built a beautiful new park on the very site of an unfortunate example of the careless environmental legacy of the past. But I think it’s perfectly appropriate – and another outstanding example of Boise’s resilience, creativity, and determination to continue preserving and enhancing our quality of life.

Children ages 6-8 and 9-11 can learn the game of tennis using modified tennis balls and smaller courts to allow for easier learning. Balls are lower in compression: they bounce lower and don’t move as fast. This gives kids time to get to the ball and helps them develop optimal swing patterns. Racquets are sized for small hands and the courts are small and easier to cover. Classes are offered inside the gym at Fort Boise Community Center in partnership with Idaho Tennis Association.

BEGINNER/INTRODUCTION TO FLAMENCO

Imagine a world where Bull Fighters strut in an arena, Gypsies dance with twirling wrists and graceful arms around a sparkling river, or where a Spanish Señorita moves as elegantly and naturally as a ballerina while dancing amongst friends. This is the world of Flamenco, where every person, no matter what shape or body type can discover their inner strength and grace through dance. Lead by Estefanía, class participants will learn basic foot steps, body positioning, and the flow of arm/hand movement. As class progresses we will begin working on basic percussive steps and brazeo (arms) and how to coordinate them into a short dance piece. Through a fiery Flamenco song list we will keep our focus on dancing for fun while building our self-confidence and coordination. Styles we will try to cover: Sevillanas, Rumbas, Bulerías. No partner needed for this class!

voLEARNteer PROGRAM Boise Parks & Recreation’s VoLEARNteer program strives to enhance enjoyment of our parks and open spaces in two ways: by providing opportunities for people to have a hand in enhancing and caring for Boise’s parks through volunteering, and by nurturing the public’s curiosity by encouraging exploration of Boise’s natural and historical significance through a variety of educational programs. Whether you want to learn something new or get your hands dirty with us, we offer lots of ways to go beyond passive enjoyment of the Boise park system. From individuals and families to classrooms and corporations, there’s something for everyone. Browse our upcoming offerings and feel free to contact with us. We’d love to hear from you!

JULIA DAVIS ROSE GARDEN

MARCH 15, 2017

You don’t need a green thumb to be a Julia Davis Rose Garden volunteer. Since 1935, the Julia Davis Rose Garden has attracted gardeners of varying expertise who share one thing in common – a passion for roses. The rose garden has always been a labor of love by and for the people of Boise, and you can help us keep the tradition alive by volunteering one morning each week through the summer. Starting March 15, 2017 we will hold weekly work sessions from 8-11 a.m. each Wednesday through the growing season. No knowledge of plant care is required. Our professional staff will provide direction and training for anyone who is interested in lending a hand. So don’t be shy – all skill levels are welcome!

RELEAF BOISE

APRIL 29, 2017

Thousands of trees have been planted on public rights of way over the years through the generous labor of volunteers during this annual event. Boise’s thriving urban forest offers numerous benefits: Energy savings, improved air quality, reduced storm water runoff, increased property values, aesthetic enjoyment and more. We invite you to help us keep this rich resource thriving. You provide the labor; the City of Boise will provide the trees.

PARKS, MONARCHS, AND MILKWEEDS

MAY 20, 2017

Due to a marked decrease in population, the monarch butterfly has garnered nationwide support with conservation efforts aimed at preserving and monitoring their habitat. Boise Parks & Recreation is doing its part with a citizen science program that engages volunteers in milkweed site monitoring. Beginning May 20, 2017, volunteers can adopt a milkweed site for the season (May – October) and submit data reports to us on a regular basis, for inclusion in a national database.

PARK AMBASSADORS

Park Ambassadors promote community stewardship and educate park users at Boise’s most popular parks. As a participant, you will be given all the tools and training you need to share useful information and foster greater appreciation for the historic and natural significance of Boise’s parks.

ADOPT-A-PARK

Groups can make a year-long commitment to help us maintain one of Boise’s many parks. Some of the tasks include removing graffiti, picking up litter, filling “mutt mitt” dispensers, painting site amenities, raking leaves, mulching trees, and refurbishing picnic tables. In exchange, the Department will recognize your group as the adopting agency via signage in the park.

SERVICE PROJECTS

Service projects can be scheduled throughout the season. These are typically one-time efforts that range from 3 to 5 hours, depending on location and group size. Common projects include park spruce-ups, tree mulching, amenity painting and repair, trash pick-up, and tree wrapping.

FIELD GUIDE TO BOISE’S BIRDS

Birds can be found in just about every setting within the city, from urban microparks to the sprawling foothills that border our northeastern edge. They visit backyard feeders, perch in low shrubs and on tall structures, swim in our river, lakes, and ponds, nest in our trees and soar overhead. A variety of habitats in and around the city support and attract hundreds of species, and we invite you to explore some of those that are most common. The Field Guide to Boise’s Birds is a hit, and is available for free online. A printed version is also available for purchase at the Boise Parks & Recreation Administration Office, at a cost of $8.00 plus tax.

NATURE GUIDE FOR BOISE’S PARKS

The online Nature Guide for Boise’s Parks is made available to help you answer the question, “What was that?” If you ever find yourself in Boise parks and see a plant, tree, or animal that you can’t identify, you may log onto the Nature Guide or contact us to help you get an answer.

Guided group tours may be requested, and will be accommodated depending on staff/volunteer availability. Nature Tours: Take a “Walk on the Wild Side” with us as we explore two of our most popular parks, Kathryn Albertson Park and the Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve.

BOISE DEPOT

BOISE DEPOT

The Boise Depot is a unique venue for weddings, parties and corporate parties and fundraising events. A beautiful historic Spanish-style structure operated by the Boise Parks & Recreation Department, the Depot was opened in 1925 to elaborate fanfare in the capital city. The former Union Pacific passenger train station can accommodate 300 maximum occupancy; 165 for sit-down events. Depot amenities include The Great Hall, a 3,542-square-foot space with a soaring multistory atrium. The Great Hall once served as the building’s waiting room. The original 1925 Barkalow Brothers Newsstand is featured on the west wall. The wood and glass newsstand has been slightly restored but remains in its original form. With a splendid panoramic view of the Boise Front, the grounds include Platt Gardens, a lovely park with pathways, a gazebo and ponds. The Great Hall may be scheduled 11 months in advanced (12:01 a.m. on the 1st Day of the 11th month). FREE PUBLIC DROP-IN HOURS • 11am-5pm Sundays and Mondays • Closed on legal holidays
