Description

Julia Davis Park

700 S CAPITOL BLVD

The city's oldest park, Julia Davis Park was created thanks to a generous donation of 43 acres of land in 1907 by Thomas Davis as a memorial to his beloved wife, Julia.

Julia Davis Park is the cultural and historic heart of the city. The 89.4-acre parks is the home of Zoo Boise, Boise Art Museum, Idaho State Historical Museum, Discovery Center of Idaho and Idaho Black History Museum.

The park also features a formal Rose Garden, two reservable pavilions, a six-court tennis complex, playground, duck pond, restrooms and a section of the Boise River Greenbelt.

As the city's oldest park, Julia Davis features a wide array of mature trees. A brochure is available to lead you on a self-guided tree walk through the park. It is one of the riverside parks in the "Ribbon of Jewels" named for prominent local women.
