Best Government-sponsored Sporting Match

Parks and Rec softball teams

Staff Pick

Most city parks and rec departments are content to fiddle with sprinklers, lawn care and the occasional community barbecue. Not so in Boise. Boise Parks and Rec staff offer all manner of sports and activities for youth and adults. While leagues for volleyball, basketball, hockey and wheelchair sports offer variety, the city's softball leagues and tournaments are some of the best sporting around. OK, so maybe the athletic displays aren't quite at the level of the majors, but this is still no minor operation. Come tournament season, BP&R embraces bracketology to rival March Madness. Not that everyone takes themselves that seriously--after all, they call it "beer" league softball for a reason.
