A river runs through Boise. And, for the most part, parks run alongside it. For 25 miles! Rollerblading, biking, jogging, strolling, fishing, wildlife watching, cart wheeling—there’s room for it all on the Boise greenbelt. One of the country’s few greenbelts when it was first being pieced together in the 1970s, today the Boise greenbelt is a model urban waterway connecting 850 acres of parks and the city. The greenbelt starts in the east at Lucky Peak State Park—don’t feel silly if you sit and stare at the outflow of Lucky Peak Dam for a few minutes—and meanders west to the Glenwood Bridge, passing a dozen parks, Warm Springs Golf Course, the natatorium, the M.K. Nature Center and its underwater viewing windows, downtown Boise and the Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial, the first monument in the U.S. to honor Frank, along the way.
