Parkcenter Pond

Parkcenter Park is a 13 acre special use park, located in east Boise. The area is frequently visited by waterfowl during the spring and summer months. Although Parkcenter is a smaller park it is a very popular place to play sand volleyball. Park was donated in 1979 by Morrison-Knudsen, Inc.

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

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.

This location provides opportunities to see birds and other wildlife. 

idaho birding trailThe Idaho Birding Trail (IBT) is a network of sites and side-trips that provides the best viewing opportunities to see birds in Idaho. With 175 sites and about 2,000 miles of trail separated into four distinct regions the IBT represents a collection of bird watching hotspots, diverse habitats, and a glimpse of Idaho's rich natural heritage. In recognition of the educational and recreational opportunities it offers to the public, the House of Representatives passed a resolution in 2006 declaring the IBT as the official state birding trail of Idaho.
