A second large park in Boise’s Barber Valley is beginning to take shape. 

The Boise Department of Parks and Recreation is set to hold a neighborhood meeting on January 17th for the 20 acre park along the Boise River near Eckert Rd.

The park plan currently calls for baseball fields, basketball courts, volleyball nets, "picnic pods," and parking.  

Boise could see new riverside park if the "ifs" can be worked out

It is envisioned as a more sports-oriented park than the nearby Marianne Williams Park which is dedicated primarily to open space and trails.

The newest park would be named for Alta Harris.

A neighborhood meeting is set for January 17th at 5:30pm at the Library at Bown Crossing.
