Located just 8 miles southeast of Boise, Discovery Park is a great place to picnic, fish, and relax among the magnificent trees and the rocky canyons which offer beauty and solitude.
This section of the Boise River is an excellent flat water area often visited by canoeists and kayakers. You will usually see waterfowl, song birds, and our resident owl during the summer while bald eagles are common in the winter.
Discovery is an excellent place for dogs to play! Please clean up after your pet (doggy bag dispensers are located by the dumpsters) and please keep your four-legged friends leashed when not playing in the water.
