Barber Observation Point

6300 S Surprise Way

Barber Observation Point is a 2-acre special use area in Southeast Boise overlooking the Barber Pool Conservation Area (BPCA).

BOP.jpgThe BPCA is owned and managed by the Idaho Foundation for Parks and Lands.  Located approximately 6 miles east of downtown Boise on the Boise River, the BPCA contains one of the last intact black cottonwood stands in the rapidly urbanizing Boise Area. The BPCA is heavily utilized by over 200 species of wildlife, including bald eagles and mule deer. This makes the BPCA a place of tremendous significance to wildlife, conservationists, and the scientific community.

Interpretive signs will help visitors to the park learn about habitat diversity (1.8 MB) and watching from a distance (3.5 MB).  If you are having trouble viewing the PDFs, please read the sign text
