Boise River

One mainstay of Southeast Boise culture that many people find irresistible about this part of Boise is the quick access to the Boise River and the Boise River banks. This means that you can easily enjoy a jaunt along the river, a swim in the cool water and so much more. It is a wonderful place to enjoy an afternoon, and it is right in your backyard!


Kelton Trailhead

Hiking/biking trails are a big part of Idaho culture and the Kelton Trailhead is the place to start when you are ready to get out into nature. This Trailhead leads to several loops that are great for exercise and a day out. It is great fun. Some of which unofficially continue on the other side of Highway 21 at the Oregon Trail Reserve.


Idaho Ice World

Skating can be a fun activity and a great way to exercise. Whether it is figure skating, hockey, or just skating for the fun of it, you can do it all at Idaho Ice World. This awesome dual indoor rink is an affordable way to enjoy some time on the ice and includes a skate rental area, arcade and a snack shack.

The Simplot Sports Complex is a massive piece of land that offers 20 soccer fields, and 15 softball/baseball fields for local enjoyment. It is a fantastic place if you love sports. Not to mention it is conveniently located on the corner of Gown Road and Federal Way.
