There's dookie out there. Gotta watch it. I wouldn't hold too many football practices out there. Lots of landmines.

This is our favorite park in the entire Boise parks system. Quiet, almost undiscovered yet large enough for most games, tennis courts, all kinds of amentities. Can reserve the covered picnic area too.
