Baggley Park

1411 E PARKCENTER BLVD

baggley.jpgBaggley Park is a 7-acre neighborhood park located in Southeast Boise on Parkcenter Boulevard. Named for the late George Baggley, the park was purchased with federal Land and Conservation funds.

Amenities include a perimeter pathway, restroom, picnic shelter, basketball court, volleyball court, tennis courts and open space. 

The park site was acquired by the City of Boise in 1977 through the Land and Water Conservation Act. Baggley Park is named for George Baggley, a 14-year member of the Boise City Board of Park and Recreation Commissioners who also served as a member and liaison of the Boise River Greenbelt Committee. He died in 1991. During a 40-year career with the U.S. National Park Service, Baggley was responsible for the development, design, acquisition and supervision of parks in Jordan and South America. Known informally as Loggers Creek Park, the name was officially changed to Baggley Park in 1990.

The City of Boise’s Department of Parks & Recreation (BPR) uses South Boise Water Company water in several of the City’s parks. Learn more about the relationship in this article

Adopt-A-Park

Baggley Park has kindly been adopted by the Boise Friends Group, who are a loose knit group of Boise area young professionals who enjoy the outdoors, social networking, and in general, being good citizens who try to positively affect their microcosm of influence.

The Adopt-A-Park program gives churches, civic organizations, local businesses, and other community groups the opportunity to adopt their neighborhood park. Adopting groups will commit to maintaining their park for a renewable one-year term, helping with things such as eradicating graffiti, picking up litter, filling mutt-mitt dispensers, painting site amenities, raking leaves, and mulching trees and planting beds. In exchange, the Department recognizes the group as the adopting agency via our website and signage at the park.
