On July 30th, Boise just became even more dog-friendly than it was before! Thanks to donations from the group Together Treasure Valley and the Harry W. Morrison Foundation, a brand new Dog Island has opened at Ann Morrison Park!
Boiseans love their four-legged children and the opening of this amazing new park is a great way to show our dogs our love and appreciation. It is a place for them to be able to run around and play off-leash, surrounded by beautiful nature and amenities.
Located in the southwest corner of Ann Morrison Park, the site includes a 5.4-acre active dog area, a fenced-in area for the “shy dogs” and a pond that has been dredged and cleaned, for dogs to swim and play in. For the owner's comfort, two picnic shelters have been installed and nine park benches are installed throughout the park.
Dog owners know the importance that playtime is for our beloved pets. Being able to play and run off-leash and to swim a few laps in the pond is a dog’s ultimate dream. In fact, it will make their entire day (especially after you were gone all day at work). It is a great new amenity for Boise residents as it is still close to downtown and is a very unique project that came to life. We can’t wait to take our furry friends here to let out some energy, meet new friends and enjoy our beautiful city!
