Hugging the Boise River, this park invites visitors to take a dip in the river's blue waters. Most visitors accept the invitation, with about 250,000 people beginning Boise's summer river-rafting ritual at the park. But river-rafting is not the only attraction. Fox, muskrat and beaver make the park their home. Developed sections of the park provide wildlife-viewing opportunities and educational information. Picnic facilities are scattered throughout the park. If you don't feel like packing a lunch, a concession stand is also available.
