Cassia Park is a 14-acre site in the heart of the Boise Bench. A popular destination for a neighborhood stroll, the park features a walking path, covered shelter, restrooms, playground, softball field, several pieces of public art, tennis courts and horseshoe pits.
The property was acquired in 1967 and it developed through matching funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Cassia Park is one of five summer Playcamp locations operated by Boise Parks & Recreation for kids age 6-12. Camps include recreational games, arts, crafts, environmental education, hands-on science projects, field trips, swimming, and opportunities to make new friends!
Amenities & Details
Open Play Areas
Cassia Park has kindly been adopted by employees from T.J. Maxx.
The Adopt-A-Park program gives churches, civic organizations, local businesses, and other community groups the opportunity to adopt their neighborhood park. Adopting groups will commit to maintaining their park for a renewable one-year term, helping with things such as eradicating graffiti, picking up litter, filling mutt-mitt dispensers, painting site amenities, raking leaves, and mulching trees and planting beds. In exchange, the Department recognizes the group as the adopting agency via our website and signage at the park.
