#21 of 23 in Parks in Boise
Marianne Williams Park is a 72-acre site located on the Boise River in East Boise's Barber Valley. The riverside park features grassy open areas, paved walkways, an extension of the Boise River Greenbelt, ponds, and an expansive view of the Boise Foothills.

The site was donated to the City of Boise in November 2005 by Larry Williams in honor of his wife, Marianne.

Once the home of Barber Mill, a large-scale lumber operation, the park has been cleared of invasive trees and bushes and replanted with hundreds of trees and riparian vegetation.

Manicured grassy areas provide a scenic play space for children. The park also features two large ponds, paved walking paths, a gazebo, picnic shelter, restroom and benches.

Streams, ponds, wetlands, and forested riparian areas benefit wildlife, improve fisheries, and provide viewing opportunities.

  • Absolutely gorgeous hidden little area in the foothills of Boise. You guys seriously if you're looking for a place to have a more natural ceremony this was absolutely beautiful. It was extremely reasonable there were places to set and plenty of parking. We were so blessed with a stunning day!
  • Beautiful nature park and pond. Walk around and enjoy nature and the sun. Attended a wedding there. Only down side is a small parking lot. Maybe 30 spots give or take. So get there early because there is no place close for overflow parking.
