DeMeyer Park


demeyer.jpgDeMeyer Park is a large neighborhood park located in West Boise. The park is 12 acres and complete with picnic areas, volleyball court, basketball court, and a playground.

The 10-acre parcel that is now DeMeyer Park was given to the city in 1977 by Albert and Hazel DeMeyer. The park is the site of the original ranch home with barns, silo and pond.

A plaque in the park states: "DeMeyer Park:  In Honor of Our Children Arlen, Eugene, Joanna--Dedicated to Children:  May They Play Here:  In Freedom, With Harmony And Happiness"

Joanna "Jody" DeMeyer later contributed more than $200,000 for the design of a shelter/restroom structure.
