Mark Stall Memorial Playground

hobblecreekplayground.jpgAge appropriate for 2-5 year olds as well as an additional area for ages 5-12. The playground was created in memory of slain Boise Police officer Mark Stall in 2000. The playground was developed using $100,000 in impact fees and $15,000 from the city's general fund, which was approved by the Mayor and City Council. The Boise Parks and Recreation Department worked with the Brighton Corporation (developers of Hobble Creek subdivision) to construct the playground, which saved the city $40,000. The city staff also consulted with members of the Stall family on the design and layout of the site, which features a plaza, benches, trees, the playground equipment, and a plaque in memory of Mark Stall. Set in the plaza around the memorial are seven plaques with the words that characterized the principles of Officer Stall: integrity, liberty, respect, peace, justice, dignity and equality. Officer Stall was the first officer in history of the department to be killed in the line of duty. He died September 20, 1997. The playground surface is wood chips.
