Sterling Park Site (Undeveloped)

9851 W Irving St

Sterling Park Site is scheduled for green-up in January 2018 and projected to be completed by the end of the Summer 2018. Green-up phase includes turf, irrigation, a pond, pathways and a parking lot.

The Sterling Property is an undeveloped park in west Boise, featuring a 3/4 acre temporary fenced dog off-leash park. 

A master plan for the 8-acre undeveloped park was developed in 2010 with input from local residents. Located in West Boise at the intersection of Mitchell and Irving, the property was purchased by the City of Boise in 2004 from the Sterling family.

Additional funding will be available in 2023 for the construction of a restroom, tennis and basketball courts, picnic shelter, playground, and spray park.

The dog park is available for use every day from sunrise to sunset, and consists of mulch ground cover, trees, picnic tables, and shade structures. A mutt mitt dispenser and trash can are provided for picking up after your pet. There is no water, so please bring your own.

Dogs and their owners should be sure to follow the City's leash ordinance going to and coming from the dog park, and follow the Dog Off-Leash Rules and Regulations while visiting the park.
