New Off-Leash Pilot Parks to Be Decided Today


Later today, Boise’s Park and Recreation Commission is expected to choose two to four city parks to serve as “pilots” for new off-leash sites.

Parks and Rec received over 3,400 comments regarding the issue. More than 69 percent of respondents supported off-leash hourly/seasonal use at their neighborhood park.

This afternoon, staff will give positive recommendations to Castle Hill, Cypress, Manitou, Redwood and Sunset Parks. The recommendation is expected to be year-round off-leash hours from sunrise until 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. until sunset, with only morning hours for Sunset Park.
