Julia Davis Park


This 89-acre municipal park is considered the first and most central of Boise’s so-called String of Pearls (the multiple lush green parks lining the Boise River). It’s home to some of the city’s most prominent attractions including Zoo Boise, Boise Art Museum, Discovery Center of Idaho, Idaho Black History Museum, and Idaho State Historical Museum.

It also has the customary amenities, as well as bocce courts, horseshoe pits, a boathouse, paddle boats, barbecue pits, and plenty of flower-lined walkways. A footbridge connects to Boise State University across the river. A section of the 25-mile-long pathway known as the Boise River Greenbelt also traverses the park.
