New Off-Leash Pilot Parks to Be Decided Today

by

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.
