A modern, new, multi-use park provides the opportunity to deliver a new professional USL soccer franchise to a soccer-loving community ready to respond with enthusiastic support.
This new venue would also provide a modern home to the Boise Hawks, who have been calling Boise home for 30 years, but currently play in a stadium that has outlived its useful life.
In addition to these primary tenants, the proposed facility is also an ideal venue for outdoor concerts, fun-run or triathlon start/finish areas, prep tournaments, corporate/community functions, and family-oriented events.
As a potential centerpiece of a mixed-use development on an adjacent seven-acre site (arguably the last downtown parcel of this size available for development), the park has long been viewed as a critical asset to improving quality of life. Such a project could coalesce the city’s downtown and inject capital and energy into a neighborhood that has not attracted much investment in recent years and that is showing some signs of deterioration.
