At Boise Parks and Recreation (BPR), we believe the strength of our department comes from the people in our community. As such, we strive to comprehensively engage the community in our operations that enhance our parks and open spaces in two ways; by providing opportunities for people to have a hand in caring for BPR's parks and programs through volunteering, and by nurturing the public’s curiosity by encouraging exploration of Boise’s natural and historical significance through a variety of educational programs.

Whether you want to learn something new or get your hands dirty with us, we offer lots of ways to go beyond passive enjoyment of the Boise park system. From individuals and families to classrooms and corporations, there’s something for everyone.
