Peppermint Park

2030 S Sumpter Way

peppermint.jpgPeppermint Park is a 7-acre neighborhood park located next to Pepper Ridge Elementary School in Southwest Boise.

Park amenities include open space, trees, pathways, restroom and picnic shelter.

The restroom and shelter were funded by Mayor's Neighborhood Reinvestment Grants awarded to the Southwest Ada County Alliance. 

Initial development of the park was dedicated on Oct. 27, 2006 by Mayor David Bieter, Meridian School District Superintendent Linda Clark and neighbors and students at Pepper Ridge Elementary School. Development of the site was funded by West Bench Neighborhood Impact Fees levied on new home construction and allocated by the Mayor and City Council with input from a citizen committee.

Logo.SummitChurchPeppermint Park has kindly been adopted by the Summit Church. The Summit Church is a unique blend of people: young, old, and everything in between. That are big enough to provide many needed ministries for the community in which we live, yet small enough to enable you to meet others and make friends.

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.
