In order to set a new precedent for riverside recreation within the Boise region, the design for The Park at Expo Idaho is rooted in an aspiration to maximize both PLAY VALUE and ECOLOGICAL VALUE. The park is envisioned in two regions — the Heart of the Park and the Lowlands. The Heart of the Park is a 25-acre area of intensive active recreation, fitness, and play, as well as a venue for events and education opportunities. It is envisioned as the new Civic Core of Garden City and Boise.
Complimenting the Heart of the Park are over 60 acres of parkland devoted to the lowlands, a nature-based recreation landscape that prioritizes high ecological value and expanded urban biodiversity. More than five miles of trails wind and weave through 7 distinct landscape types, allowing park users to experience and engage microcosms of many of the Treasure Valley’s most valuable ecosystems.
