A modern, new, multi-use park provides the opportunity to bring a new professional USL team to a soccer-loving community ready to enthusiastically embrace Boise’s own professional club.
This new venue would also provide a modern venue for the Boise Hawks, who have been calling Boise home for 30 years and whose fan base has been growing, but who currently play in a stadium that has outlived its useful life. The sports park could also potentially be a home field for collegiate and prep sports and summer camps.
In addition to these primary tenants, the proposed sports park is also an ideal venue for outdoor concerts, fun-run or triathlon start/finish areas, prep tournaments, corporate/community functions, and family-oriented events.
As a centerpiece of a mixed-use development on several adjacent acres in the West End (one of the last downtown parcels of this size available for development), the sports park has long been viewed as a key asset to further enhancing Boise’s quality of life. Such a project could coalesce the city’s downtown and infuse capital and energy into a neighborhood that has been ripe for investment in recent years.
