Morris Hill Park

10 N ROOSEVELT ST

Morris Hill Park Oct 2010 2 A popular neighborhood park on the Boise Bench, Morris Hill opened in June 2007. The 7.91-acre site features a large grassy open area, a 1-acre fenced dog park, picnic shelter, playground, restroom, benches, tables, horseshoe pits and an arboretum.

A brochure is available to lead you on a self-guided tree walk through the park. 

The 24 x 20-foot metal shelter helps to provide a shaded picnic area for families and friends to gather in the neighborhood.

In 2009, MHNA received a Neighborhood Reinvestment Grant award for $132,750 to build a new playground in the park. The new playground was completed in mid-April 2010.

Improvements completed in 2017 include dividing the dog park for a separate area for small dogs, constructing a gravel walking path, additional toys and agility training amenities and adding additional benches and picnic tables.

Adopt-A-Park

Gem State KiwanisMorris Hill Park has kindly been adopted by the Gem State Kiwanis Club.  The Gem State Kiwanis has a rich history of public service. Their current project to help with the everyday maintenance at Morris Hill Park has met their on-going mission of being of service to the youth in our community.  One of their key missions is "to develope, by precept and example, a more intelligent and serviceable citizenship."  The Kiwanis are please to be an active part of the Morris Hill Park experience!

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.
