Ann Morrison Interactive Fountain

1000 S. Americana Blvd.

Grove Plaza Fountain

This one is a contributor favorite, but it can get busy! Located in the heart of downtown Boise, this fountain is a classic in the summer and makes for a great cool-down spot during Alive After Five, First Thursday, or any other event happening downtown.

Molenaar Park Splash Pad

2815 S. Maple Grove

This is a newer splash pad that opened in 2023, but they were smart when building this one. A series of shade structures (think large umbrellas) have been installed to block the hot summer sun and provide shade while the littles play. Thank you, Boise!
