Mission Statement Parks and Recreation's mission is to enhance Boise's quality of life by working in partnership with the community to foster and support citizen well being and community environments.
Boise Parks and Recreation enhances the quality of life in Boise by providing safe, healthy recreational opportunities for children and adults. The Department is responsible for maintaining 89 parks, 190 miles of Foothills trails, 25 miles of Greenbelt pathways, hundreds of acres of open space, Zoo Boise, Warm Springs Golf Course, Quail Hollow Golf Course, six outdoor pools, Idaho IceWorld, Fort Boise Community Center and many other amenities. We offer art, drama and dance classes, fitness and martial arts programs, mountain biking instruction, nature tours, environmental education, special events and other programs. Boise Parks and Recreation serves hundreds of low-income youth at five school-based community centers and a mobile recreation van program that travels to parks, schools and refugee apartment complexes throughout the city.
